Try this. Right click on your desktop. Choose Personalize. On the left side find "change desktop icons". Theres a box that says " Allow themes to change desktop icons", uncheck that. Reboot and see if that worked.

Hello Gen,

You might also see if the free program DeskSave or DesktopOK may work for you for saving desktop icons and positions.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
