  • The desktop icons fly over left after resetting my computer.

    Hello

    I just had a question. It is not a big deal, just a pain. When I restart my computer all the icons that I moved to the upper-left corner of my screen (hobby icons and links to video games and applications) are all moved to the left of the screen with the computer/network/trash icons. I have to move every time I reset my machine. I made sure that the reorganization is off. I even turned on and then off it again.

    I am running windows 7 that came with my dell. He started just do it after I made a backup of my computer.

    Is this a common problem? How should I do? As I said, this isn't a huge problem, just a pain to move all icons back just to reset on me when windows updates or I turned off my computer at night.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thank you

    If you have a 32-bit system, you might want to try the following fix.

    This border on the desktop icons can be created when the elements of the Office was locked, to unlock the desktop items web right click on an empty area of your desktop. Now, select arrange icons by and uncheck "Web Lock Desktop items" if she has a little check mark next to it. If you did not have a tick here and then right click on your my computer icon and view its properties, now click on the Advanced tab click the button settings running. Now on the Visual Effects tab scroll effects to 'use the shadows of the desktop icon labels' and put a tick in the box next to it, and then click ok. This should remove the border from the shadow of your desktop icons.
    Just like that.
  • How can I prevent the desktop icons move arround whenever a different profile is open?

    Hi JexterMaxim,

    1. what type of user accounts that you use?
    2. don't you log on as an administrator?
    3. don't you make changes to the agreement of the issue occur?

    When you install a program, you will need to select the installation option in particular only to user accounts. Not in user accounts. You can try the following steps.

    Desktop shortcuts are stored in one of two places:
    (a) in c:\Users\Public\Desktop. These shortcuts are shared and are visible to the user ever.
    (b) in c:\Users\UserName\Desktop. These shortcuts are not shared and are visible to the user.

    When you right click on a shortcut, and then click general, then you can see where this particular shortcut is stored.

    To make a shortcut of the group a) visible to yourself, do this method:
    a. drag the shortcut to the side with the right button of the mouse.
    b. Select "copy". You have now two seemingly identical shortcuts.
    c. delete the original shortcut.

    I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit. How can I change the color of the font describing the desktop icons?

    Hello

    You cannot change the font color of desktop.

    Because desktop wallpaper images have different colors, it is easy for the colors of unreadable fonts if they are on top of the same color in a background image to display. For example, a black font on top a dark part of the background image or a white font on a white part of a background image.

    The desktop icon fonts are dynamic and show white on dark background and change in white with a shadow effect black on a light background.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you for using Windows 7

Ideal for quick hide all open files!  However, I can't figure out how to get the desktop icon in my taskbar in windows 8.  Can anyone help?

  • How to lock the desktop icons in a multiple monitor configuration

    Original title: lock the desktop icons - and display

    Working with Windows 7 Home Premium has a problem processing 2 pieces: no matter how many times I said I want the display screen appears on the monitor, the screen of the computer, every day he arbitrarily returns to the computer screen only. That creates the 2nd problem: the desktop icons that I have arranged for the largest monitor rearrange themselves to adapt to the computer screen. Is there a way I can lock the icons in this position that I used to be able to do? Or is it possible that I can keep the display to go back to the computer screen? (I'm careful to apply the instructions to display before the specified seconds elapse).
