The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)
A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

After you arrange them the way you want them download this little freeware utility that allows you to save the desktop icon layout so if it ever gets changed accidentally it takes but one click to restore it to the way you had it:

Don't sweat the small stuff! I saw this post and said to myself "Hey, I know this one!" Then it took me 10 minutes of searching for the little "Lock desktop icons" box I was thinking of! See, happens to all of us!
Right click on your desktop to bring up a pop up window. Click on the "Desktop" tab. Now, click on the "Customize Desktop..." button towards the bottom on the left. Now, click on the "Web" tab. Here's the problem: The "Lock Desktop Icons" box is checked (towards bottom of box). Uncheck this box, and you'll be able to move your icons how ever you like!
Hope this helps! Let us know!

..... Oh dear, I couldn't figure out how to add the two desktop 'captured images' here. Got them into 'paint' and lo, they won't transfer. Off to read through all the mini-tutorials on this site as I'm sure that topic is already covered somewhere.

The way to post an image here is to upload them to a picture hosting site and then use the link they provide.
One such site is Image Spot
It will then give you a variety of ways to use the link they provide which you just cut and paste into the forum window where you post/
Use "Your Image in BBCode"
An example would be:
[ img ]http://img15.imgspot.com/u/06/141/22/IE1148352050.jpg[ /img ]
(I put spaces between the brackets and the word img and /img to show you what the image in BB Code would look like.
Back to the icons -
Right click on the desktop and click "properties".
Do you have a theme chosen other than XP or Windows Classic?
If so, use one of those which you access with the dropdown arrow to the right of the theme name.
