On my Windows 10 desktop, I moved my desktop icons around yesterday but when I turned it on today, they're in completely different places. Why did that happen? I want them to stay where I placed them.

Right click the desktop, select view and make sure you do not have the auto arrange option checked.

    Probably by mistaken, Auto arrange is selected when you play with desktop icons. Just deselect auto arrange and this can help to rearrange them as you desire but you can do it manually.
