Somehow, the desktop icons for a workstation that i frequently Remote-desktop into has been rearranged to the right side. I don't know how/when that happened, but only discovered when I minimised all windows (which i seldom do).
The good thing is, when i log on physically to the workstation, the desktop arrangement is back to the regular alignment. So there is a "disconnect" between Windows 7's physical layout vs virtual RDP layout.
Now the question is, how is it possible for me to get the RDP layout to "reset" and follow the physical alignment again?
