Desktop Files Location
When saving files to my desktop, Vista changes the location, not in the directory, but the location on the desktop. For example, if I have a word file saved on the right hand side of the screen, Vista will often save it to the left hand side of the screen, which makes it hard to find. How can this be fixed?

Also, what does it mean when the file icon has two little faces on it? I haven't been able to figure that out.

Folder with two little faces would mean 'shared' folders.
