Icons on monitor 2 moving to monitor 1 when screen is refreshed or system is restarted

My standard arrangement is that all of my desktop icons are on screen #2. I have taskbar access on all screens.

Screens 1 and 2 are both LG 32GK650F-B 1440p 144hz displays.
Screen 3 is an Insignia 1080p television which I use to watch movies on.

Prior to installing DF, I did not have problems with the icons moving automatically to the primary screen, in two automatically arranged rows, whenever you right click the desktop and select refresh OR restart the system.

Primarily I was giving DF a second shot, after having tried it last year and moving on, to keep the desktop wallpaper on all three monitors from being constantly changed by Windows, and it does that just fine, but now my icons are all snapping to the primary monitor.

I'm willing to buy the paid version if we can guarantee that the icon profile feature will resolve this issue, but if I buy it, and it still does it, I'm not going to be particularly happy about it.

So, wondering if Keith or Owen have any feedback on this issue, or suggestions. Diagnostic info is attached.

Thanks.

Hello,

If you right click the desktop and head to the view tab, is "Auto Arrange Icons" enabled?

Thanks!

No, it isn't. Align to grid and show desktop icons are, but Auto arrange is not enabled.

However, after uninstalling DF and restarting, then reinstalling, the problem seems to be gone, so IDWTF what going on with that but it isn't doing it now so no news is good news I guess. Thanks for the reply though Owen.
