I wonder if anyone can suggest a solution or point me to information on my shortcut issue.
I have 69 shortcuts on my desktop and after return from Hibernation mode or Standby mode, some of them are out of place.
The movement only occurs where there are multiple shortcuts stacked vertically up the screen. Single shortcuts along the bottom of the screen do not move.
There are two full columns of shortcuts on the left of the screen. A gap in the first column appears with an extra shortcut pushed to the top of the second column and one from the bottom of the second column goes to the top of the third column.
On the right side there are two columns of shortcuts, but they are not full - there is space for one more shortcut in each column, and after hibernation/standby one of the shortcuts in the first of the two right-hand columns has moved to the top of the right-most column, leaving a space in the middle of the column and pushing some icons down in the right-most column.
Not exactly a life-threatening issue - but a bit annoying!
The configuration is:
Compaq Presario V5100 Laptop
Processor AMD Turion
OS XP Home 32 bit- all SPs applied
Screen 15.4-inch, WXGA, TFT (1280 × 800) display
Screen resolution 1280 x 800

Video driver ATI MOBILITY RADEON Xpress 200 Series
Icon size = 30
Font Tahoma 8pt
Vertical spacing 28
Horizontal spacing 28
Background image (Stretch option)
Theme - custom theme
Screen saver Beziers
The shortcuts appear in the correct position after a full restart.
I use Desktop Icon Save and Restore by Jamie O’Connell, but I have to run it 6 times to get all the icons back in the right position!
