If you moved from Windows XP to either Windows 7 or Windows 8, chances are that you have noticed that you can no longer disable the Auto arrange icons setting in Windows/File Explorer. In other words the Auto arrange icons setting is permanently turned on such that when you use any of the icon views in Windows/File Explorer, you can no longer manually move the icons where you want them. This disability is especially apparent when you are looking at a folder full of images. Fortunately, Microsoft MVP Shawn Brink has created a couple of very slick batch files that quickly edit the registry to disable this permanent setting and bring back the Auto arrange icons and Align icons to grid menu items - at least to a certain extent. Let's take a closer look.
