Desktop icons move to the left every time Desktop refreshes
Date Added: 7/10/2018

User reports that their icons keep auto-arranging to the left side of each of her two screens.  I could replicate by right-clicking on the desktop and choosing Refresh.  To fix the problem, right click on the desktop and DISABLE align-to-grid.  Then, reenable align-to-grid.  Somehow, that fixed it immediately for me.
