Windows 7: Losing desktop icon placement.

13 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 Build 7100
Losing desktop icon placement.

Windows forgets my icon placement on the desktop when I restart the pc or exit some games. Some of of us have no icons on our desktop, some of us have 50. Maybe it's not necessarily Windows fault, could be nVidia but either way I would think by now there should be a way to save your icon placement regardless. I've never had this problem with any other OS, just Windows. I requested it on several occasions through feedback but still has not been considered or implemented which makes me wonder if it's even worth Microsofts time since I never get any replies back. I just sent another request and hope Microsoft will listen. If there is a way to fix it, appreciate to hear any reasonable way to do it. Thanks.

Ok, so I guess nobody knows how to fix this issue. I know I am not the only one, google gives over 10 pages of hits on this problem.
