How to lock Desktop icons

Every time my computer installs updates and re-starts it moves all my icons from where I have placed them to my preference. It also brings them out of my storage for used infrequently folder.

Hello mistermouse,

You might see if either the free program DeskSave or DesktopOK may be able to help with this. They will save and restore your desktop icon layout.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
