In THIS WinXP system, when I move desktop icons slightly, it's like they are on elastic bands, and they snap back into place. In another similar WinXP system of mine on a different computer, the icons stay put in any higgeldy-piggeldy position I drag them. The settings on the desktop menu for 'Arrange icons by...' are identical for the two WinXP systems. How might I fix the faulty (the latter) one ?

Make sure Align to Grid is selected (checked).

*Regarding the elastic thing, in able to achieve that Auto Arrange should also be selected.

As said in my first post - DESPITE the 'align to grid' settings, they do not align in one PC and in another they do.
