Windows 7: Issues With ; Wmp12, Icons, Dual Wallpapers etc.

Issues With ; Wmp12, Icons, Dual Wallpapers etc.

Hello folks of the Seven forums.

I have a few problems, so I'll do a nice list rather than splatter gunning it onto a post.

1) If I have a window (singular) open with 7 icons in it, how can I move them about? I don't want to arrage by type, auto arrange, sort or any variation there of. I just want to move some icons about in a window, cut the ones I want and leave the rest as is. Any way to do that? I really can't figure it out.

2) Is there a WMP12 to 11 downgrade prog that works on 64bit yet?

3) In XP, if I wanted to set a wallpaper across two screen then I'd make it the size I want (photoshop) then tile it so it would be across the two. That doesn't seem to work now. So is there some trick?

4) Oh, my icons are going a bit iffy. Icons for MP3's and most things that play via WMP12 have gone. Any idea as for a fix?

Thats about it, thanks for any help.

1) That was removed, there is no manual sort.

2) Doubt it.

3) Try Center in "Picture position" selection.

4) Icons? Have gone? afraid I don't understand.
