Locking/Pinning Windows 10 desktop icons in place

Q. Is there any way in Windows10 to keep desktop icons in place? Windows seems to want to shift them around on occasion. I know you used to be able to right-click, freeze them in place with a setting, lock icons in place, and then uncheck auto arrange, but I’m not finding that in Win10.


Follow the steps provided below to arrange desktop icons.

  1. Right, Click on desktop screen.
  2. Place the cursor on View.
  3. In the drop-down menu, select auto-align and check.
