system moves files dropped onto Desktop  



Running Mojave.  Does anyone know if there is a way to force MacOS not to relocate a file dropped onto the Desktop?  Typically I drag a file to a blank spot on the Desktop, release the mouse button, and often MacOS decides to move it somewhere else.  That "somewhere else" is usually behind another open window, so then I have to minimize windows to find out where the system moved the file, which I originally asked it to put in a blank spot.

If you Right-Click on the Desktop, how are all the various options set?

For example:

  • Use Stacks
  • Sort by
  • Clean up by

How are they all set?
