Desktop icons keep rearranging


#1

Everytime I boot up, my desktop icons are rearranged.

How can I stop that ?


#2

That’s not normal. Can you provide a more specific description of how they are being rearranged?


#3

I figured it was not normal.

I saw another post about the same problem.

They all pile up on the left side of screen.

It did it again without a reboot ?


#4

What version of Ubuntu-Mate?


#5

What does your tweak look like? Some of the layouts work better than others, especially in earlier versions.


#6

I have a custom layout.

If I use another layout, will I lose the ability to go back to my layout?


#7

My version is 18.04.


#8

Hit the “Save as” button under the Panels tab so you can go back to your custom layout before trying any fixes.


#9

I have rebooted several times, and the icons are staying put.

Guess it was one of those anomalies. :slight_smile:

Tricky-ville.


#10

If you right click on desktop, there are two options named Keep aligned and Organize desktop by name

Maybe they’ve got something to do with this?


#11

Thanksm I have tried both.
