Which menu are trying to move icons around on? Or are you referring to the home screen or home launcher? If so, is it the launcher that comes with the phone or one you installed from an app store? What phone and what software update does it have? Did you root and install a custom recovery or just root only?

Try "Nova Launcher" if your device is Android 4.0+. Prime version is the launcher I#m using at the moment. Highy customizable and pretty fast


Complete free solution: Mini Launcher

Well, when you have the Red X there and the icons move around, that is the uninstall app option. Should just be able to hit the back button to get out of that part. Make sure there isn't an option in the settings of the home screen that lock the desktop, which prevents moving of icons and widgets around. If you are trying to sort them a custom way in the actual app drawer, it's very likely that the stock Sony home launcher does not have this option. Like the other member mentioned, check out the Nova launcher, or the Apex Launcher. Both have free and paid versions with lots of ability to customize to your liking as well as running very smoothly on most devices.

Topic should be closed. I have solution. Simply - this file (probably with ending php) contains some infos, so the icons from menu were set in most used order. Sorry for my oversight. Dope with me
