    I don't know what happened, but I just noticed my home screen/desktop went from letting me put icons anywhere on the screen, to specific places on the screen. I did not change any settings and I have not downloaded any updates in weeks. This had to have happened in the past two days.

    I tried to place the icons back where I had them, but it's not letting me.

    What happened? How do I get it back to placing icons where ever I want them?

    Right click the desk top, and see if "Auto Arrange" is selected (checked)?
    If so, click it and it well be unselected.
