The icons/documents that I do NOT put in a fence do NOT stay in the same spot on the desktop that I set them. I am using Windows 10.
I have a monitor with a resolution of 2560x1440. I have put a folder in the upper right corner and my recycle bin on the lower right corner. If I play a game with a resolution of 1920x1080 - these two icons will end up in the middle of my monitor when I exit the game. This happens every time.
-Set folder shortcuts (or other non-fenced items) and recycle bins to the upper and lower right corners of the desktop
-Have a monitor resolution of 2560x1440 (I suspect other resolutions will work)
-Open full screen game (I used Terraria as example) that uses 1920x1080 resolution (or a lower resolution than the default desktop)
-Exit the game
-Observe icons on screen and you will see that they have moved.
Expected result: Any items, not in a fence, should stay in the user defined position on the desktop
Actual result: Icons not in a fence do not stay in user defined position if an application runs a different resolution than the default desktop resolution.
