Locked Desktop Icons

Hi All,

I've recently installed Display Fusion (v3.1.5) and since I have all of my desktop icons are locked.

My desktop is not set to Auto-Arrange, and (Display Properties -- Desktop -- Customise Desktop... -- Web tab) Lock Desktop Items tickbox is not selected.

However, I cannot drag around any of my icons. I'm running WinXP Pro SP3.

I've hunted through the settings in Display Fusion but can't see anything obvious. Am I missing something?

Any help much appreciated.

Sorry, I'm not sure how DisplayFusion could have done that. DisplayFusion doesn't have any settings that affect or change anything to do with desktop icons. Could there be another piece of software interfering?

That's a shame. I'd love a feature (or piece of software) that I can use to save/remember my desktop icon positions. When I RDP to my desktop, then log back in locally they're all over the shop. Doesn't really help the original poster's problem, but it would be a nice feature.

Here are a few links to solutions people have come up with:

This is something I always liked to let UltraMon do (automatically whenever resolution changes), before I switched entirely to DisplayFusion. It would be nice if DisplayFusion had that feature, indeed.

Icon position save/restore is planned for a future version, don't worry.
