    Hi,

    New XP user.

    Have a bunch of icons on my desktop.

    A few of them, but not all of them, or all of the time, keep re-arranging
    themselves
    as to their location on the desktop.

    Why ?

    Anything I can do to keep them where I want them ?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Right click an open area of the desktop. "arrange icons by" and either
    uncheck whatever is checked until nothing is left checkmarked, lets you
    put anything anywhere, or check "align to grid" to keep things somewhat
    tidy. Reboot.
