Subscriber Ray Lenz wrote with a question about the icons on his Windows desktop. Unfortunately, Ray didn’t mention which version of Windows he’s using
I arrange my icons on the desktop in categories. Every so often they are all jumbled. Not just moved but all scrambled up. What causes this and is there some way to lock my desktop to prevent this from happening?
Ray’s running into one of the features of Windows.
By default, Windows will arrange the icons in rows from the upper left to lower left, then another similar row to the right, repeat until all are displayed.
The Recycle `Bin is shown first. at the top left-hand corner of the Windows Desktop. The others are shown in alphabetical order.
Depending on the Windows version you are using, it can be easy to trigger the resort.
