Drive icons are now vertical on desktop

I want to move them to horizontal just above the panel

Drag and drop does not move these icons

Hi, phil66 !

Season's Greetings!
To have the drive icon manager respect your choice,
    right-click on any drive icon and click "Run Drive Icon Manager"
    at the bottom of the first left-hand panel, UN-tick "Tick to re-align... blabla"
    validate

An illustration is attached.
This applies to any Puppy, not just Carolina.
Best of luck.

Hi Musher0

Thanks for the reply

In Carolina-003 I am not getting the panel you illustrated

When I right click a drive icon (sda1) etc all I get is :
open
mount volume
Properties-greyed out
Applications-This the same applications menu from right clicking the desktop

Searched for event manager in control panel,PPM and nothing found

I can move icons around in Lucid-528 but not in Lina-003

Hi phil66,

xfce desktop icons are a pain, but you can work around the problem, right-click the desktop and select Desktop Settings > Icons make the icon size so that it gives you a larger grid to work in, then you Should be able to drag the icons to where you want them, I found that it did not save the positions, so I made a script to save the positions and they can be restored at reboot, could most likely add the appropriate script sections to shutdown and startup to automate this, anyway here's the script to try.
Code:
#!/bin/sh
#Save and restore XFCE Desktop icon positions
mkdir -p ~/.config/xfce4/desktop.bak
export XDesktop_Icon_Restorer_GUI='   
<window title="XDesktop Icon Restorer" icon-name="emblem-desktop" resizable="false" decorated="true">
<vbox>
 <hbox space-fill="true" expand="true" homogeneous="true">
   <button use-underline="true">
         <label>_Quit</label>
         <input file stock="gtk-quit"></input>
      </button>
      <button tooltip-text="Save the current desktop icon positions" use-underline="true">
         <label>_Save</label>
         <input file stock="gtk-apply"></input>
         <action>"xfdesktop --reload; sleep .5; cp -f ~/.config/xfce4/desktop/* ~/.config/xfce4/desktop.bak/"</action>
         <action type="exit">yes button clicked</action>
      </button>
      <button tooltip-text="Restore previously saved desktop icon positions" use-underline="true">
         <label>_Restore</label>
         <input file stock="gtk-refresh"></input>
         <action>"xfdesktop --reload; sleep .5; cp -f ~/.config/xfce4/desktop.bak/* ~/.config/xfce4/desktop/; sleep .5; xfdesktop --reload"</action>
         <action type="exit">yes button clicked</action>
      </button>
   </hbox>
</vbox>
</window>'
gtkdialog --center --program=XDesktop_Icon_Restorer_GUI
