This just bothers me to no end. Three major revisions of an OS and not a single programmer thought to put some sort of memory or control on the location of your desktop icons?
It doesn’t matter if your using Windows 95 or the latest offering. If your computer should happen to crash, or your monitor changes resolution or sometimes it seems if you sneeze the wrong way your desktop icons end up all messed up.
Is it that hard to program around these things? You’d think this would be an area they would have actually improved on in vista.
I guess all that value packed DRM code they implemented was more important.
