    Using XP and have 2 users setup each with their own desktop customizations. Problem is that I usually have all of my icons on the desktop arranged so that they are lined up on the edges of the desktop so that I can see them when I have a window open in the middle of the screen. My problem is that when XP switches from one user to another my icons are moved in a couple of inches on the right side. This is weird because up to a couple of months ago I had no instance of this happening. I've moved my icons back to where they were but same thing always happens. Is there some tweak in XP that got changed that I don't know about?

    Thanks in advance!

    This may be because another user on this PC has their profile set to a lower resolution than yours. I don't know why it does it, but I think there's a good chance that's what it is. If everyone has the same screen resolution settings, this shouldn't change at all.

    Good luck!

    Actually both user resolutions are set to 1280 X 960. ?
