    Hi, I have this trange issue in that my Desktop icons keep resetting back to a default location which is the top left of my screen. It happens when I install a game and run it windowed then full-screen. Not only this, but sometimes I end up with the folder on my desktop and their icons and text being very small. No idea why.

    I've never had peace with it since Windows 8 when they changed the whole UI.

    Hi

    Also, right click on the desktop and select View, just to be sure that it hasn't gotten changed to "Auto Arrange" some how.
