I remember this fix to Let "My Computer" icon be first on desktop, has anyone found a reg or tweak for windows 8.1 that could work?.
I found this http://www.sevenforu...-desktop-5.html but it dont really say anything about windows 8/8.1 :/
I really hate that documents folder being first each time i reboot my machine since the 2nd monitor makes both monitors blink twice when they get into windows and icons have changed back, sooooo annoying.
You *could* just hide one or both of them, and make your own shortcuts to do just what you want. Right-click on the desktop, choose Personalize, then click the Change desktop icons link near the upper-left of the Personalization panel.
As far as the desktop icons becoming reorganized, I don't personally see that because I have a desktop in which all the monitors are permanently connected, but here's an idea that comes to mind (if you've not already tried it)... Arrange the icons the way you want them with both monitors connected, then log off or reboot with them connected. Then disconnect a monitor, rearrange the icons the way you want them with just the one connected, then log off or reboot with the hardware still in that condition. I'm thinking Windows should save each arrangement per the desktop size at the time of logoff.
