I can't move the desktop icons where I want that they

My desktop icons have all left I would like to.  They are now lined up on the left side of the office and move where I want that they.  This just happened recently.  How can I fix this?

In the past, they would periodically change the resolution and move and I have to change the resolution and put them back where I wanted them.

Why resolution change without my entry?


resolution could change through the driver through windows update update

try going to your graphic card manufacturers site or computer and are looking for the driver download section

Search your computer or graphics card model number based on what you have and download and install the latest graphics drivers for vista

then try to make the screen of solution of problems


Right-click empty Office - view - uncheck auto arrange - check line up on the grid for the icons

    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.

  • Can't put my links where I want that they


    I'm trying to align my links in the #header using the fill command. The problem is when I try to align the Pentecost padding-top and padding-bottom links, nothing happens.

    I thought that maby the command counted filling px high from my Web page, rather than the top of my #header and I tried to increase the px accordingly, but that did not help either. Also it could maby be better/other how to put my links where I want that they without the use of paddig?

    Here is my css document:

    @charset "utf-8";
    /* CSS Document */
    body {
     font:"agency FB";
     padding:92px 26px 38px 42px;

    Here is my html code:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

    <div id="bottom">
          <div id="venstre">
         <div id="hoyre">


    One way to achieve the look that you are after is move the top, bottom and left padding in the rule of the header so that only the font size and the right padding remain within the rule of hyperlink.

    #header {}
    background - image: URL(images/Header.jpg);
    position: absolute;
    top: 142px;
    left: 0px;
    Width: 1024px;
    height: 158px;
    padding-top: 38px;
    padding-bottom: 38px;
    padding-left: 42px;

    #page #header a {}
    font size: 28px;
    padding-right: 26px;

    by adding #page #header in front of one will ensure that all of the other links add you in the body of your page not the same style.

  • How can I pin the desktop icon in the taskbar

    Before I bought my new computer with windows 8, I used to have the desktop icon in my taskbar (very useful for when I have a lot of windows open at the same time and need to access the icons on my desktop).  I would click on the desktop icon in the taskbar and hey presto all other open windows minimize all without the need to reduce to a minimum to each of them individually. 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?

    Windows key + M does the same thing. Also move the mouse to the lower right of the task bar is also.

  • Move the desktop icons after the release of the games

    First of all, I would like to say that I read this question and answer: http://goo.gl/MkSVA but I think I have a scenario different some - which may require a different response.

    When I'm in a game and I want to leave a moment, I press Ctrl + ESC to get to my office. on most games, this doesn't cause any problems. On some games, when I'm on the desktop my icons have been moved. Running the game I play on the correct resolution.
    My resolution is 1366 x 768, and I have a second monitor which is 1024 x 768. I think that the second screen resolution may be the cause of the problem.
    I am running Windows 7 64 bit.
    When I unplug my second monitor, I can see the icons on my desktop get smaller so I know that the monitor is something the resolution of my laptop screen.
    Please help me solve this problem!

    • Drag the button to the position to the left of the address bar.
  • How can I remove the "eye" icon where it is seized of password

    I would like to remove the "eye" icon because when I type my password it has this icon when you click Watch my password. This is on all my sites.  How can I get rid of this icon?

    He can't use it to see your password.  You can see what you've typed when you're the one who entered it.  He grabbed your computer and went to something with a password box, it would be empty.  No invasion.

  • How can I move the bookmark icon to the left side of the screen in Firefox 8.0?

    I am left handed and after all this time I've lost the favorite icon as the icon home page at the far right of the screen. Why have you done this, look like Windows Explorer? If I wanted IE8.0 I would have used. And the default search engine is Bing? At least there is a work around to change that. You have really made a mess of this exceptional product.
