Have you tried unticking the 'align to grid'. I just had a look at my settings and this is not ticked.

I cannot move the icons around on my desktop computer. I have 'right-clicked' and made sure that the auto arrange and lock desktop icons options are NOT checked off. I cannot open jpegs witho


If its shared, are you logging in to user account or are you the administrator for the computer? The administrator account can add / remove rights for the others but locking desktop icons I haven't seen as an option. Try doing a system restore if there is a restore point available to a date before the problem started. No data is affected just settings and drivers and such

Hi.
What you could do is to open the start menu - click Search and give/search for explorer.
You will now see a list of icons etc containing the word explorer.
You will for sure recognize the Icon for explorer8.
Now you right click on the icon - use the copy function.
Close down the search function and place the cursor on the desktop - right click and chose the Insert function.
Your startup icon is now placed on your desktop

Windows Vista Ultimate: Recycle Bin


If you find that when your Recycle Bin does not refresh but shows the same icon, irrespective of whether it is empty or full, here are some trouble-shooting steps you can try. Hopefully, one of these 5, should help you. 1) Check if you have installed any Theme or an Icon Package, and see if uninstalling it makes the problem go away. if so then the problem is in the Theme or Package. Also try switching the theme to Windows Classic theme and them back to Vista Aero default. 2) Right-click Desktop > Personalize > Change desktop icons > Disable / Uncheck Recycle Bin. Then click Restore Defaults. Click OK. Reboot. Now using the same method Enable /Check Recycle Bin, then restore defaults. Click OK. Refresh Desktop. 3) In the 'Desktop Icons settings' Dialog Box, check on Recycle Bin.
Then click on the ‘Recycle Bin Empty’ icon.
Click on 'Change Icon' tab.
rom the new box which opens, select the icon that shows the 'Recycle Bin Full'.
Do the same for 'Recycle Bin Full' icon.
Change it to 'Recycle Bin Empty' icon.
Now click Apply.
Now check whether, when the Recycle Bin is full, the empty-icon show. And vice versa.
If it does, go back and again change back the icons, to what they should be, using the same procedure, mentioned above. 4) Use the Group Policy Object Editor.
Type gpedit.msc in Vista's Start Menu Search bar and hit enter.
User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Desktop > Remove Recycle Bin icon from desktop > Double click on it > Enable > Apply Reboot.
Next, follow the same above-mentioned steps. But this time instead of 'Enable' select 'Not Configured.
See if it helps. 5) Repair or Re-build the Icon Cache. For this the easiest way would be to download and use TuneUp Utilities or Stardocks Icon Packager. They are not freeware, but you can use the trial versions to get your job done.

SHORTCUT TAB


Hi sadiebay. It was not my solution for your initial post, but I think I can explain why you can not find the shortcut tab.

Because Internet Explorer is a Microsoft program integrated into XP, it is considered a 'Desktop Icon' item. The shortcut you are trying to find the properties tag for was probably put on the desktop using the Show Desktop Items routine in the Display Properties routine. It will not have the same right-click options available as a regular shortcut icon placed on your desktop.

The solution is to go to your Start Button->All Programs and right click on the Internet Explorer icon in the program list, then Send To Desktop. You will get another icon that looks the same, but you should notice that the new one has the small shortcut arrow on the 'E' where the old one doesn't. Now when you right click on the new icon (the one with the arrow) you get Properties as the last option, and within the Properties tab you should see Run with a drop down box next to it, in which you can select Maximized. Delete the old icon (right-click and delete, doesn't hurt anything) and put the new one in its place to keep your desktop set as you are used to it.
