I have a laptop connected to a work desk monitor most of the day. When I arrange my icons the way I want they always get all scrambled up every time I switch to my laptop screen or when I connect the laptop to my projector. I want to lock the icons into place & I don’t care if I can not see some of them when I move from laptop screen to pc monitor to projector. I’ve looked into a solution online but all options dealing with “Auto Arrange Icons” or “Align Icons to Grid” don’t seem to help. Any combo of selecting or deselecting those setting don’t help. On an old win7 laptop I had a 3rd party app I would use to put all my icons back in place. I was hoping Win10 had a way to do that automatically or at a setting level. Thanks!
