Locked Desktop Icons

User Image
1 discussion post
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. :-D

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. :)
