i was in a word document and clicked "save to desktop" 9i think?) and then when it went to my desktop screen the icon order was all over the shop - still ordered but different to how i had it.

when did i give my pc permission to do this?

i dont want to have to download yet another program to fix something that is essentially a settings issue - it usually always is.

There are many occasions when desktop shortcuts can get scrambled. I got them all off my desktop and put them into a toolbar. That is a lot neater because I can order them very well and they are always accessible without having to go to the desktop. Besides, I now can admire my nice desktop pictures without all the crummy icons obstructing it. Toolbars - How to Use in Windows 7 and Vista - Windows 7 Forums
