Currently, my desktop icons are divided into three groups:

  1. Upper left icons in the following order:
    • Libraries
    • Computer
    • Recycle Bin
    • Network Magic
  2. Continuing to read downwards and to the right: about 2/3rds of the icons in alphabetical order Acrobat to WS FTP Pro
  3. Continuing to read downwards and to the right: the remaining 1.3 of the icons in alphabetical order.

I want to have Acrobat in the upper left and WS_FTP Pro in the lower right with all icons in pure alaphabetical order between. How can I do this?
