I am running Windows 10, and I have many icons on my desktop. I would like to sort some of them (by name/date/etc), but when I Right click on my desktop and then do Sort By > Name all of the icons get rearranged. How can I only sort/mass rearrange selected icons?

Fences, a piece of software that allows you to group your desktop icons, appears to have the ability to sort its groups individually.

    Is there a way to sort icons on the raw desktop, without any additional software? Is there a way to just apply a sort to selected files/folders instead of all files/folders on the desktop?
