Thread: Maintaining Icon positions
04-12-2004, 01:49 AM #1RusynGuestMaintaining Icon positions
Why does Panther always move around my icons on the desktop? Is there some way I can lock them in place or organize them?
I have a a 17" iMac, and keep may icons on my desktop (I always have a million projects going on at once) and I hate searching for downloaded files... and my hardisk icon always jumps to this area near the middle of the screen instead of staying in the top right corner where I put it.
Any tips for a recent switcher?

Interesting. I don't think that should be happening..I could be wrong..it could be settings or something. Mine stay put...and by that I mean...they stay where I put them, or place them..depending on how you'd like to hear it.

I believe this will resolve your problem. Click on he finder menu View -> Show Desktop Options. Then unselect Snap to grid.Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!

By default, the HD should always be at the top right corner of the desktop, even if you choose arrange by name or date, it should apply to everything BUT the HD....very strange.

About the HD icon being always in the same place - I think that's smart -it won't ever get momentarily lost in the crowd

Thanks for the suggestions. I will try them out when I get home tonight!

you're not alone, my HD icon is a bit jumpy too. 10.3.3, 15" imac. no moving around though if the only icon you have is the HD.
