    • Boy racers are using a cemetery as a 'racetrack' amid claims parents are letting them run wild during lockdown.
      Complaints have been made to Northumbria Police about youths riding motorbikes in the West Lea area of Bedlington, Northumberland.
      Isabel Easson, whose daughter Bethany Fisher died in a car crash, claims a handful of teenagers are terrorising residents.
      "There are two of three teenagers on motorbikes racing past the park where the children are, then going through a gap to get into the cemetery . They are using it as a racetrack," she said.
      Bethany, 19, died when Jordan O'Donnell's Ford Mondeo ploughed into parked vehicles in Bedlington.
      She had been out celebrating her birthday when O'Donnell lost control of the car.

      So, you've just neatly arranged you desktop icons and turned off the auto-arrange so that they don't screw up again.  Then you plug another screen into the lappy, and whoops... all your organisation is undone again!  That's what I mean by Desktop Icon Hell.
       
      Is there a way of stopping this happening, and forcing Windows to stop moving things around?  Because when you change screen resolutions moving fixed size icons is very necessary, but when you change back you want all those changes to be undone, and Windows fails badly here.
       
      Well, there is a trick you can pull shutting the desktop down with the Task Manger and restarting it, but it's messy and you shouldn't need to resort to tricks!  Enter DesktopOK.
       
      DesktopOK is a freebie, and it does not need to be installed.  You can run it from anywhere you want (even a USB stick) and it saves icon positions in a plain text file in the same directory as you put the .exe.  It's small, fast, totally customisable, and you can minimise it to your icon tray.
       
      The only minor annoyance is that the German author has defaulted it to German, so you have to select English yourself.  But - as it's a free gift - I say vielen dank and totally forgive him! 
       
      Recommended!  (I've virus checked the first - 114K - download only, and it was free of any nasties at the time of download)
       
      And... yes, I forgot to say, it does work fine with Windows 10!

      Yet another Microsoft "technology" meets the dustbin of history.  They sold you it but they won't fix it!
