After windows 11 update, all my desktop items are stacked on top of each other and won't move.  Occasionally, I can pull one off the top but I can't place it on the desktop.  I have show desktop items checked but not auto arrange or align.  Any suggestions?

As a follow up, I have been able to move a few around but most stack and I have no control of desktop. Tried to use the snipping tool but receive error message: a problem with windows is preventing snipping app to open.
