When I have auto arrange off, I can put files wherever I want them. However, if I move one file somewhere, it leaves a gap between the files. Then when I save something to the desktop, it gets saved in this gap, and I have no idea where the heck the file has been saved on the desktop, and cant find it easily later.
You would think I could just turn auto arrange on and my problems would be solved. Nope.
If I turn AutoArrange on, I have no gaps, BUT: I can no longer arrange my icons how I want them. I either have to arrange them by type, name, date modified, etc. Also, and even more irking, when the desktop refreshes, files I was JUST working with are auto arranged to some unfindable location.
