DF 9.4.3 - Refreshing Screen or Moving Icon Results in Desktop Icons Moving All Over the Place

I use the saved icon profiles feature of DF and this bug is something I've noticed in previous versions of DF. When I refresh the screen or move an existing icon from one position to another, the entire grid goes haywire and moves all my icons. Where the icons move to isn't random -- it is the same place always, but this is quite annoying. Anything I can do? I've tried to create a new profile but that doesn't help.

If you right-click the desktop and go to the View menu, is "Auto arrange icons" enabled?

Hi Keith, no it is not. Seems like any new icons that I move into the section causes this. So what I'm now doing is whenever new icons are needed, I'm saving them to another section. I have my 43" 4K TV sectioned into 6 "monitors", FYI.

That's really strange indeed, DisplayFusion doesn't have any features that would move the icons around when simply arranging them manually with the mouse. Do you have any other desktop management software, maybe Stardock Fences or something?

Hi Keith, I don't have any other desktop managing software. This is still an issue...when I go and Refresh the desktop, it also makes the icons move all over the desktop.

It happens when just right-clicking the Desktop and clicking Refresh? If you exit DisplayFusion, then do that, does it still happen?
