Windows 10 Updates Trash My Desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows 10 Updates often trash my Desktop Layout. Everything is still there but it is completely re-arranged. This is particularly annoying when I have allowed the desktop to accumulate too much crap but still have all the important, frequently used stuff in discrete, easy to locate areas. 

    This should not happen but it does and is unlikely to stop or even be recognized as an issue. Is there any way to back up just the Desktop Layout including the positioning of the icons on the desktop and then restore them? I would like to back up my "clean desktop" after I have done a house cleaning and be able to use it as restore point when Windows Update has trashed my desktop...
