still ... Image
basically there is a file somewhere that is changed
somewhere in ~/.config/xfce folder

I never use desktop icons so I would not know that.

Is it reported on Xfce4?

I am now assuming that you put icons on your desktop like we would do on Windows.

To the right work related icons/links.
To the left games related icons/links.

Then an update comes in they are all misaligned or scrambled.

Is that correct?

In gitlab.xfce.org says that:
"it should not happen if at least one of the default-icons remains on the desktop"
Let's see...
