    Any help appreciated. After installing leopard, my desktop icons align themselves in straight rows from right to left in alphabetical order. I can't seem to find anyone else who's had this happen or any way to fix it. Needless to say, it's useless and I'd like to be able to arrange my icons any way I'd like. Any advice greatly appreciated!

    Thanks.

    In Finder,

    View -> View Options -> Arrange By -> "None"

    As a recent swticher, I'm have a similar but different desire. I'm looking to enable the 'invisible grid' feature of Window's desktop that would align and basically click desktop items into place as you moved them. Is there anyway to do this on a Mac?

    Thanks.

    Click on Desktop, press CMD + J, select "Arrange by: Snap to Grid" at the bottom
