Hello, first timer here so hope I do it right.
Can anyone tell me how to move icons around the screen. In XP you could choose to line them up automatically or move them yourself. In 7 I cannot move them myself. Any help welcome.
Thanks for the reply. I mean they just go back again. I keep them in a folder in my documents and like to sort them MY way. I guess I could just rename them but in XP could move them easily. I did what you suggested on desktop but there was nothing ticked anyway. When I right click in the pics page, whatever I click as a choice, it also changes to 'descending'.
Thanks for reply. Don't have 'arranged by', but have synchronised 'sort by' and 'group by'. Both have 'date' and 'ascending' ticked. They will stay like that until I add other pictures to that folder. Then if I again click on 'sort by date' to merge the new ones in with the old ones, they will automatically go 'descending'.
Hi again. No I have not added anything to windows 7. When I said synchronized I just meant I had set them both to exactly the same things to put them in agreement as you suggested. Eventually I may get round to using a better system for my pics, but for now they are just in files in explorer. I have this same problem with any files not just pics. It doesn't happen if I choose to sort by name, only for date!
