icon locking with password protection?

Hello. Is there a way to keep the icons on my desktop locked into position, without having another person come by after me and rearrange the icons? Like a password protection type software? (I'm not talking about the auto-arrange button issue) Thx for any help. DM

Hello Dr. Max,

In addition, depending on what your needs are, you might also consider having a separate user account for each user. This way they will each have their own desktop.
