Can you post a screen-shot of your desktop? This is the lowest I can place my icons...

Have you changed anything on the system that you remember since then?


You could always do a system restore to a point when you know it was working; have a look at the tutorial at the link below. That may be more trouble than it's worth for a cm.

So you can, I'd left "Align to grid" checked.

Any chance of a screen shot to show what it is you're talking about, as it could be something simple, and will be easier to try and rectify than reinstalling.

I hate that. That's what it was, when I did "align ..." it won't go any farthed down than yours.


I hate "align ...", I just had to say that again.

Hello sam49.



We're glad you're back to normal; you sound like me, a clean install will fix most anything.

My motto is, "never store anything on C: you don't want to lose", words to live by.
