    Desktop icons moved

    I am running a fairly vanilla version of Ubuntu 20.04. I find that if I open a file on my desktop, when I close it, it is placed in a different location on the desktop, often displacing another icon that was in that position. How can I avoid this, and have icons return to their original position? Thank you.

    Thank you for the response. The link you suggested applies to gnome-flashback. I am not using flashback, but classic gnome with gdm3 display manager.

    Never mind - I switched to Mate and the problems seem to have disappeared!
