Desktop icon arrangement when opening

It was working fine until recently. When Displayfusion opens up now my icons are misarranged. It'll arrange fine when I load my icon profile but it is annoying doing every time a restart my pc. I've tried turning off grid alignment but it does nothing.

Hi Martin,

Strange, does it happen every time you open up DisplayFusion (IE. you can continually open and exit DisplayFusion, and each time it rearranges your icons)?

Thanks!

I rearranges it to the same layout every time displayfusion opens.

Hi Martin,

Could you send me over a debug log? Here are the steps:

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

Thanks!

Hi Martin,

Thanks for sending that over. I was able to reproduce the issue on my end, and it seems like Windows is automatically changing the icon layout when the work area is changed (If you disable the DisplayFusion taskbars, the issue shouldn't happen). Unfortunately there's nothing we can do on our end to fix this, but I'm going to play around with it a bit further and see if I can find a work around.

Thanks!

I thought I'd toss in that I have just started having this issue too: when I restart windows the icons have moved all around. This is since I made a bit of a mess of the registry and had to reinstall windows (albeit not all the programs - most still work, a few need reinstalling). I've temporized by putting a desktop shortcut to reload the icon layout - just done this following an example from a previous forum thread and I'll see how it works....
