How can I change my Desktop Icons "Gravity"?

The Icons on my XP desktop have the normal left "gravity". That is, they fill-up from the left side to the right side. However, the wallpaper that I have just switched to makes the left side "busy" and the icons are hard to see there, so I would really like to switch them to a right-side gravity. Nothing fancy, like Fences, I just want to change their default fill direction.

"A little idle googling turned up a couple of possibilities:

WinTidy 2 has layouts/templates for aligning icons. Problems with XP SP2, YMMV.

Iconoid allows you to save icon positions for multiple resolutions, so may help with your docking/res change issue.

As far as I can see there is no inbuilt feature to align icons to the right of the desktop."

Don't know any easy solution either except disabling "Auto Arrange" option. Then you can arrange icons anyway you like. If you want even more freedom in placing them you can even disable "Align to grid".
