    Yes, with third party software. This one will do it but isn't free.

    I am sure we can find a free one somewhere. Just have to Google.

    You have to arrange the icons the way you want them, then right click on recycle bin, and then click on save desktop layout. After that, if the icon positions change, then right click the recycle bin, and click on restore icon layout.

    That way doesn't seem any different than what Windows can already do.

    This doesn't look like it does what I want either.
