    The icons resident on my desktop have all migrated to the left side of the screen and refuse to allow themselves to be relocated. Even attempting to erase and reset the icon fails. Is there a switch or checkoff that I can access to free up the icons for relocation? Thanks

    Right click a blank area of the desktop, select Arrange Icons->, Click on Auto Arrange to remove the checkmark,
    this should allow you to put the icons where you wish.
