    text aligned right to icons!?


    Hi, my cat arranged all desktop icons + changed text alignment right to icons. How can I get back to default settings, text under icons?

    Unless Zuu's cat uninstalled the software after using it , presumably it's a setting that can be changed with software that is there already ...

    @Zuu do you have any software tools installed that allow changes to the "look and feel" of Windows?

    I just mentioned D-Color in case he could not fix it any other way.

How's it going everyone, I just installed Windows 8.1 and so far so good except for one minor but extremely annoying bug. Any file explorer window I open is not properly aligning with the mouse pointer. So if I want to click on lets say the C drive, I can't hover the mouse pointer directly...
