    You're the Microsoft hero right? Can you tell me why Windows insists on moving the desktop icons I place in the lower right corner of the monitor one row higher?

    I place them here:
    icons1.

    And it keeps moving them here whenever I reboot:
    icons2.

    Upgrade to windows 8 and use the modern application launcher instead of relaying desktop icons

    or turn off arrange icons to grid.

    I don't think anyone considers that abortion of a tablet OS to be an upgrade.
    Not exactly expected behavior, but it did the trick.

    Thank you and if you ever need any help running a real operating system, I'll be glad to assist you.
