On a reboot or just turning on the PC, I always have to change my desktop resolution to where it was. I select "autoarrange", but it doesn't do anything. Am I doing something wrong?

Auto arrange pertains to icons, not resolution...and is not the option you want...that puts them into those neat rows :thumbsup:.

Uncheck auto arrange and they will be as they were when you last logged off.


FWIW: Resolution involves the depth of the desktop screen and is controlled by the video driver. Lower resolution numbers (e.g., 800x600) produce a smaller amount of desktop space, while larger resolutions produce more room for icons, etc.
