JSI Tip 7118. When you configure the Windows 2000 Control Panel to use Small Icons, the icons are improperly arranged?

Enabling and disabling the Icon Auto Arrange feature does NOT correct the subject behavior.

To fix this problem:

1. Start / Settings / Control Panel.

2. Press Large Icons on the View menu.

3. Press Small Icons on the View menu.

NOTE: The above is a temporary fix, which must be performed each time you open Control Panel. I suggest that you use the Details view.
