    How can I change the icon alignmen on the desktop
    Hi

    I want my disk icons to be on the left-hand side of the desktop. I move them there, but everytime I boot the computer, they're back on the right.

    On Windows, it just leaves them where I put them. On Amiga OS, I used to be able to snapshot icon positions.

    Is there a way to do this?

    I have Panther 10.3.4.

    Thanks.

    Cool
    I believe that the icons are alway on the right side, but you can try the following and see what happens.

    View -> Show View Options - Turn off Snap to grid.

    he is right, uncheck all boxes and icons will stay where you put them
