Hi, i had an issue with my screen resolution, it changed from 1366x768 to 800x600, after i tried an emulator program. I tried to fix it and i got it back to the normal resolution but my desktop icons changed their order. So i want to get back the normal order of my desktop icons, but i don t know how to do it. I know that the desktop icons order is saved when you close windows and loaded next time you start windows. Is there any way to load the last saved order of my desktop icons, so i get the correct order for them?? I m using windows 8.1

Thx for your help, i tried auto arrange but nothing change, the align to grid option was already enabled, so i disabled it and enabled it again but no changes.

I disabled the "view - show desktop icons" option, so all the icons disappeared then i enabled that option again and all the icons appeared in the correct order except for the last row (next to the windows taskbar) of icons that are missing. This is the closest solution that i got for what i want.

Ok, i got it back. I restarted my laptop and my icons were in the correct order but the screen started in the wrong resolution 800x600. So I took a pic of my desktop and saved it in Paint program then right click -> screen resolution and i changed it to 1366x768 and saved it.

After that with the help of the pic i had to change the order of the icons manually, but i got them back.

Thx for the help.
