Solved!

Windows 10 desktop icons

HP Recommended
Omen
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have put some of the desktop icons on different locations on the screen. After rebooting all the icons are aligned up in the left. I have tried to use the Personalize , themes and desktop icon to keep them in their place on the screen. But on restart they again go back to the left. Very annoying as I never had this problem in Windows 8.1. Please advise.

@604edc,

Arrange your icons as you wanted.

Follow what I said, but instead of view, tap refresh.  Then logout via shutdown menu.

@604edc,

1) in an open space on the desktop perform a right click

2) View

3) Un-click these:  Auto arrange icons    and     Align icons to grid

 

That should fix it.

I did right click view and both auto arrange and align icon were unchecked. This did not solve the problem of the icons moving on start up each time.
