I am trying to keep the icons size and position to the place where I've shutdown my computer.

That is: Keep desktop icons to the right and at a small size.

When I restart my computer, the get a medium size and are all aligned to the left.


  • Align icons on grid UNCHECKED
  • Auto arrange icons UNCHECKED
  • When I create a new account I dont have this problem
  • Cleared registry with CCleaner
  • Uninstalled all Intel Graphics Accelerator
  • Windows updated
  • I use only 1 monitor

Does it do it when you log into Safe Mode? How about when logging in as a different user? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jun 30 '12 at 14:55
