I am using nVidia Desktop Manager on, but have grid settings off. This should fix the spacing problem. Optionally you can read all about my credentials, here. Scroll to the top of the Registry Editor on the left of the screen and collapse all the folders (if any are open).
I used this feature in XP Home that came in this computer and it worked. Note: You may have to uncheck and recheck the "Align to grid" option before your icons will move into place.

When you find the setting you like, release the CTRL key on the keyboard. Once you do that your icons will move to your new grid settings. Glad to hear my post was helpful to you. NotDrew 30 Oct 2007 at 4:32 pm (UTC -6) Link to this comment Reply
