    I am trying to drag some icons (Desktop, Windows Explorer) down to my toolbar from the Desktop, but they won't stay there when I release the left mouse key. Windows XP. Help please.

    Also right click on an empty space on desktop and put your cursor on "arrange icons by" if "auto arrange" is checked, un-check it.
