Snapped on the grid icons?

A great tip submitted by Ties Van Veelen! With "Snap to grid" selected in the View Options, every icons will be perfectly aligned on to an invisible grid. Sometimes, depending where you drag it to, it will just kind of choose where to put the file and not actually follow what you want. There is a way to force it to ignore the "Snap to grid" option and it is by holding down "Command". With Command-drag, you can put the files wherever you choose to while keeping "Snap to Grid" for when it's useful! Thanks Ties Van Veelen!
