    I have arranged my file icons in "My Documents" folder in a particular way that is good for me. My arrangement has a different number of files on each row. When I open an Excel 2000 file by double clicking the icon, the icon moves to a different location in the folder. It seems to move to the next available space in the grid. When I close the file, the icon moves again, not back where it was, but to the highest available grid space. Opening a Word 2000 file seems to work OK. The icon doesn't move. I have tried this on XP machines with newer Excel and the icon doesn't move. Is this something unique to Windows 2000 or Excel 2000 or do I have some other problem?
