Hi,

So far my icons are displayed on my desktop in the order I choose, and every time I boot, the icons'places have not changed.

But since a few days, starting up displays all the icons stacked on the right half of the desktop in what looks like the snap-to-grid arrangement. Trouble is: I chose "none" in the View menu > Show View Options > Arrange by.

Can you think of any reason why my icons return to the snap-to-grid position on the right half of my screen?

Intel Core 2 Duo Mini, Snow Leopard.

I haven't had any reply to my post, I am sorry to say! Now the same thing has happened again and I still don't know why.

Isn't there anyone out there able to give me a clue?

Please help! I have to reposition by hand each icon every day...

If I am in the wrong forum, kindly tell me where to ask.

I don't know. Maybe an OS X specific forum like OS X Hints might have an answer.
