If my daughter uses her profile on my comp, it screws up my settings... even if she is completely logged off. I have to restart the computer to get my stuff to work right after she's been on her settings.

Thankfully, her and my wife use my settings/profile 99% of the time.

but when I switch from user to user, there only 10 icon max by vertical, 2 others get moved to next column.
