Windows 7: Location on desktop icons


25 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 RC build 7100x64 // 7260x32
 
 
Location on desktop icons

So the default location is on the left.. but you can move them yourself as i know.. but i was wondering if there is a way to make it go to the right by itself so when i save/dowload stuff to my desktop it will go to the right and wont have to move them myself

if anyone knows something i would love to hear it

i was reading on to see what they said about the program/app the guy said about and he said

Quote:
All that seems to do is save icon positions and let me restore them. Is there anything that would make new icons appear on the right of the screen?
I got my icons on the left already its just that when i download the default side for them is the right not the left

You could always make a new folder on the desktop and call it downloads and have that as your default location, will stop them going on the left and it will keep your desktop cleaner.

That's what I do anyway for the same reason.
