    Default Moving icons on your desktop

    I would like to know if it is possible to the icons on the desktop, and if it is possible, how to do it. I haven't found anything that looks helpful in a brief search.

    Thanks for any help

    Move them? I dont think so, you can certainly place icons on the desktop, but i have never heard of being able to move them around.

    My AP Computer Science seems to think it would be possible but isn't sure how... Anybody else have any thoughts on this?

    You should describe your problems clearly.

    Icons are just regular files, if you want to move them to the desktop just use File class to copy it. If you want to generate an icon and save it to the desktop in java, find a library to read write ICO files and use it to generate and save your icons.
