You should be able to right click on desktop and it has options to show desktop icons, and to lock them you can either sort by name date or size.

Are you talking about the Desktop Icons? Assuming you are, right click on an empty space on the Desktop, click on View, and put a check by Align Icons To Grid. If you are talking about the Taskbar...right click on an empty space on the Taskbar, and then put a check mark by Lock Taskbar...now all your icons are in prison.

I have a blue light icon that looks like a lock with arrows pointing up and down on my Gateway laptop. What does this mean and how do I get it off?


Off hand I would say that it is a Scroll Lock icon. Look for the Scroll Lock key and press it. I am guessing you also have a Caps Lock icon (a lock with an "A") and a Number Lock icon (a lock with a "1").

How do you unlock the numlock on a gateway laptop?


Uncle Buck:
On the bottom of the keyboard and to the left you will see a blue "FN" .
Now locate the "Pad Lock or Key with a Paddle-lock Icon" across the top and to the right of the function keys.
Hold down the "FN" key, press the "pad Lock" key, release both keys.
You should be good to go...
