So for whatever reason, where I work they like to set up computers with auto-arrange desktop icons on. I'd like to have that happen automatically. I'm not too experienced with computers, and I've been doing all of the other automated parts of our setup through command prompt with a batch file. I used regshot to attempt to see if I could find something to edit there, but the results were inconclusive. Does anyone have any ideas?

This is for XP. Should be the same.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

; Auto arrange items on desktop only work if executed for second logon
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\1\Desktop]
;Auto arrange on, Align to Grid on:
"FFlags"=dword:00000225
;Sort by Modified:
"Sort"=dword:00000003

I tried changing that. I guess it doesn't work in windows 7, as if I check the registry again immediately after changing it it has switched back to what it was before, and if I restart after changing it, nothing changes.

see if you have this key in the registry

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\clsid\{42aedc87-2188-41fd-b9a3-0c966feabec1}

If so then delete it and reboot

Checked, and I could not find it. Is there any way to automate this without editing my registry? Just out of curiosity.

Sure, with AutoIt.

I'll see if I can't mess around with that then. Thanks!

Well, it's not pretty, but I wrote a little something in AutoIt and it works. Thanks a bunch.
