    1)This issue would occur if the following items are checked in the menu settings of desktop
    1.1)Auto Arrange icons
    1.2)Arrange icons to grid
    2)Go to desktop of your windows 7 computer
    3)Right click on the desktop
    4)Now, Uncheck for the following items in the view menu on the desktop
    4.1)Auto Arrange icons
    4.2)Arrange icons to grid
    5)From now onwards your icons would be at the place where you have placed them!
    That’s it over!
