This is really bugging me on Mac OS X (Lion):
When I save files to the Desktop (for example downloads from Web browsers, etc. -- which in my workflow happens a lot), they are placed in a seemingly erratic order: sometimes at the bottom left of existing icons, sometimes in between existing icons, etc.
I'm often having a really hard time finding the files I just saved. Seems to be the behavior in Windows is more consistent and predictable.
Is there any way to improve this behavior, more precisely, to specify that the files be placed in e.g. a left-to-right, top-to-bottom order?
