Just been upgraded to Windows 7. How do I move the Desktop icons freely and how can I place them where I like?

Maybe you have "auto arrange" set.

Try this: right click on the desktop and click "View" from the resulting menu. Then uncheck "auto-arrange icons" You should now be able to move the icons freely.

Try unchecking "align icons to grid"
