New icons on the Desktop - Going to top instead of bottom

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Milhouse Van Houten, May 25, 2007.

  1. This is weird. Sometimes when browsing I'll download a program to the
    Desktop before relocating it elsewhere. In Vista, about half the time the
    icon goes to the "bottom" of the existing column (or two) of icons, but
    about half the time it goes at or near the top.

    What on earth is dictating this behavior? Never once in XP did I see them
    go anywhere but to the bottom.

    You may have Sort by ...(name) (date) (size) turned on.

    I don't, but I've noticed that if you have a blank space between icons, say
    you deleted one, then it will fill in the spaces, starting at the top.

  3. None of those are checked for me.

    I should note that I do use "Auto Arrange" (as I did in XP), so there's
    never an opportunity to have a space between icons.
