    in windows xp when you right click on the desktop you have the option to lock the icons to the desktop. where is that option on windows 7. because I place all my icons around the edge of my screen, but when I re boot they all re appear all on the left side of the desktop. please help thank you.

    Hello DTCZSR,[​IMG] to Windows 7 Forums.

    Right click on the desktop and hover over "View", "Auto arrange icons" and "Align icons to grid" should be unchecked, as shown below;

    Hope this helps,
