    Desktop Icons randomly aligned their label to the right


    One day I just happened to click my desktop and BAM. All of my desktop Icons now have the text on the right side of the icon. As well as I am not able to move the icons around at all.

    I've tried uninstalling Fences, thinking that was it. Did nothing.

    I have even compared registries with a friend to see any differences. Nothing.

    Nothing on the internet says anything as I have searched and searched for days with no luck.

    I just want the normal Windows 8 desktop style back =[

    Please help. Thank you!
