    So when I edit then save a pdf file, it re-arranges itself on the desktop as if it was a new file added to the desktop
    Any way to stop this?

    Do you mean to say that the icons move from its original position after you save a file? If so, right-click on desktop, select View, and then uncheck Auto arrange.

    Auto Arrange isn't checked. Okay, I realized something else. It only happens with PDF files which is saved by the Reader App made for Windows 8. It doesn't happen if I save a ppt file.
    Okay. Will change the desc.
    Well if this only happens to pdf files, I guess I might as well put them in a folder or something rather than let them mess my desktop.
    Thanks!
