Re: unlock desktop icons windows 7
I've searched on google for a solution to this locked issue but could not find anything. The desktop icons are completely locked - unmovable. I have exactly the same problem with Win7 64bit, it is very strange and I noticed that the "locked desktop icons" issue happens randomly. you can still move around the desktop icons from windows explorer, but the ones in the desktop are locked. However, I've seen this lock issue happen especially after resuming from hibernation. A reboot will remove the lock issue. I also tried the following and it worked: I terminated the explorer.exe process with task manager, and then re-run the process explorer.exe again with task manager. Then the locked icon issue was gone and I was able to move the icons in the desktop again. probably this is not the best way of solving that issue, but its better than a reboot, or (safe mode which was a solution mentioned on tomshardware - By the way, how safe mode will solve the lock issue ?). I don't know if this is a bug in win7 x64 or another app is causing this strange behavior. I hope this helps.
