You could use "layout.dll" (google it) after the icons are copied, if that helps.

No, no... layout.dll is used to restore of the layout of desktop icons.

My problem is different: the point is that when several files together are copied to the Desktop, their icons are obligatorily arranged as follows:

I would rather have this arrangement:

No, I do not know how to configure XP to create icons in line, instead of diagonally. And despite using XP for many years already, I've never noticed which is the default behaviour, since I rarely copy more than one file at a time to the desktop, in the rare occasions in which I do copy anything to the desktop. Sorry! I do, however, hope some other user will be able to solve your issue.

================

@everybody: Please do keep on-topic! This thread is *NOT* about restoring the desktop icon layout, and if that's what you want to discuss, please do go to Desktop Icon Order Keeps Changing instead, which is the correct thread for discussing it. Thanks in advance!

Check this? And maybe some other values in that registry branch (compare with other computers)?
