Windows 7: How could icons be locked in the desktop?

How could icons be locked in the desktop?

I keep having difficulties with icons that migrate all over the desktop. Is there a way to lock them in place once I get them organized individually and to my satisfaction?

Thank you.

Hello MSwhip!

AFAIK the easiest way to lock icons into place after manually sorting them on the desktop is to use the Align icons to grid function.

Access it by right clicking anywhere on the desktop ---> highlight View ---> and select Align desktop icons to grid from that menu...

Hope that helps!
