Default Help with icons please :) FIXED, see last post
Hello, today I have done something weird to my desktop. I pressed something by accident, and now my icons have gone all weird, with a gap between them (about halfway down the screen). Does anyone know how to fix it please? Sorry I don't know much about computers.

I'm not sure what you could have pressed, but can't you drag and drop them (several at a time if you like) back into place?

What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.

Oh mine does that all the time on my work laptop and then when I've placed my icons where I want them it moves them all back again!

Want a specific style of house or community building? Why not take a look at my profile and see what I build and then come ask me to make it!

Thanks for replying.

Well it's not just that they've moved, they seem to have got smaller aswell. There wouldn't have been room for a gap there before. I just had a go and they will move, thanks, so now I just have to make them bigger, does anyone know how to do that?

Hold Ctrl and use the scroll wheel on your mouse up or down.

Any idea how you get them to stay where you put them? Mine jump back to all being lined up, rather than where I put them a few days later.

Thanks everyone. I managed to get them bigger by right clicking on the background and selecting View, then Medium Icons. So they're back to normal now

ajaxsirius-I think that must be what I pressed by accident. The mouse scroll wheel pops up all the time, when I don't want it to, it's really annoying.

karen lorraine-With mine it just seems to be a case of keeping trying. After I've moved mine, they sometimes move back, but I just kept moving them where I want them and it eventually seemed to stick.

Do you ever change your resolution, or hook your computer up to a projector, TV screen etc etc?

Hi, sorry for the late reply.

No I never do any of those things.

I have managed to fix it though now, I used System Restore, and it looks nice again. Hopefully it's fixed my sims problem aswell, but I haven't checked yet.

Thanks for helping!
