Position of new items on desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    This is not an earth-shattering issue, but I'm still curious about it.

    I have my waste basket in the upper left-hand corner of my Windows 7 Ultimate desktop. I have a few programs below it that I use on a regular basis.

    When I download something to my desktop, the download always comes between the waste basket and my regular programs. Is there any way to get it to put downloads AFTER the regular icons?

    Thanks in advance for ideas - I can't seem to find this in the desktop settings.

  • Hi Michael,

    Thanks for the post!

    There's two methods could help you achieve that.

    Right-click on your desktop, choose View - uncheck "Auto arrange icons".

    Or check the Auto arrange icons, and choose Sort by - Date Modified, note this setting could change your current icons if they're not arranged by date.
