Windows 8.1 desktop icons rearrange on reboot. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, all of my icons rearrange whenever I reboot. I am using windows 8.1. I dont know if theres some application thats not shutting down properly that is tweaking everything out whenever I restart. All the previous topics are for a previous operating systems, or just dont help at all.

    This is getting pretty annoying, having to rearrange all my icons every time I start my computer. Any help is appreciated, just ask if you need me to specify anything else.

  • Just check whether the "Auto arrange" option is removed just like in the above image.. If autoarrange tick is on there is a possibility for such thing.

  • Has this question ever been answered completely? I have "Auto arrange" option removed and my icons are being rearranged all the time, with or without the option "Align icons to grid."
