    Name of shortcuts on Desktop on right side :S

    Hello all!

    Newbie here :P

    My kid pressed something on keyboard and names of all shortcuts on my desktop now appearing on right side as on attached file.

    I didn't understand how can I revert it back Googled it a lot, but didn't find any solution. Maybe can you help me?

    UPDATE: I found this thread text aligned right to icons!? and it's exactly my case, but! there is no direct solution as well. Seems there is some hot key, but nobody knows it?

    UPDATE 2: I solved the issue. It was caused by Fences software. I turned it off, refresh icons, and when they became normal, turned Fences on.

Desktop icons not lining up with right side of screen.
Sorry if this is the wrong place or if the title isn't the greatest. Tough to describe the situation. I'm running a 23" 1920x1080 monitor and though the icons on the left are justified to the left but on the right they're exactly 20 pixels off. (tested in photoshop with a screenshot) Is there...
