Keeping desk top items in place, OS 10.3 Panther?

Post by Repeating » Fri, 06 Aug 2004 10:05:18


I try to arrange desktop icons in a way I prefer. It seems that my choice is
always overridden by the system. Why is that? What can be done about it?

Do you mean system icons like the hard drive and CD drives? They are
"placed" in a certain order on boot-up, and if you move them, on next
boot-up they are re-placed.

I once wrote an Applescript to put them were I want after boot, but it
ended up being a hassle. Not much you can do.

In article <ces32u$216f$ XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,



Under View Options, I selected "keep arranged by label" and used the
labels in the order I wanted the few items I keep on the desktop to line
up.
