On older versions of Windows I used to sometimes get annoying re-arranged desk-top items - but I never thoght Audacity was the culprit (and still don’t) - but I could never find a way to provoke it on my PC. I have not experienced suchlike for a while now.
Just found out that I can reproduce this bug by that green arrow on the top.
There is a slide that allows you to place the song slower and faster (how can you switch between those two pitch modes by the way?).
I tried to play a song very slow and very fast and Audacity did it again.
There are two kinds of pitch AFAIK.
The one slows down in duration and pitch and the other one keeps the pitch but sounds metallic.

So we know that like 20% of users experience this and 80% of users don’t experience this with this kind of data rn.
This time it happened during exporting vinyl recordation that I made.
So I guess in the end I can reproduce that error and bug in the future with more and more functions.
Which means in a month or so I just need to open up Audacity and it will shuffle my shortcuts on my desktop in that strange
I don’t know if this also applies to Windows 8, but it looks like a good possibility:
If using windows 7 right click on the desktop go into personalize, click on change desk top icons on the left of the screen, a new box opens un-tick the Allow themes to change desktop icons box… problem solved.
I did check disk for my Windows 10, deinstalled Audacity, ran CCleaner, installed newest Audacity version and
now I have to “wait” until the error appears again.
If I have to wait forever, that means that the problem is fixed.
So I’m kind of trapped in an infinite uncertainty that I fixed it completely.
As long as it doesn’t appear again I’d say the issue is resolved and I’m happy.
If anything goes wrong, I will let you guys know of course.
Thanks for the update.
I’ll close this topic for now. If the problem reappears, just start a new topic and add a link to this one (In “Quick Links” near the top left of each page, there’s a link to “Your Posts” so you can easily find your old posts).
