    When I open my window 7 screen I find that all of the icons have relocated themselves to different positions on the screen
    I can sort them out but the next time I start up the have re-arranged themselves
    How do I keep them fixed???

    Right-click the Desktop & click "View", then untick "Auto arrange icons".
