  1. My desktop has about 200 icons on it. I have 130 games. I have them in a certain order. sometimes when I wake my pc up they are ALL mixed up. the restore tool is not taking care of this like it used to. how can I get them in the order theywere yesterday? I have windows 7.

    While this does not 'save' the icon positions, I think it will keep them from shifting as long as the resolution is unchanged.

    a. Right click on Desktop and click on View

    b. Uncheck “auto-arrange icons”

    c. Uncheck “Align icons to grid”

    Move some icons. Log off and log on to windows to test this.
