if Input.is_key_pressed(KEY_1):
	var Item = get_node("Icon")
	var ItemD = Item.duplicate()
	ItemD.position = get_viewport().get_mouse_position()

I am trying to duplicate something on the icon but it appears really off.

Have you tried get_global_mouse_position() or checked anchors, margins and offset of the icon?

also You should try applying change to global_position instead of position

They all seem fine and get_global_mouse_position() changed nothing.

same thing happened with global_position

Also you checked Every ancestor nodes’ anchors, margins, rect_position, position?

Don’t You have any code in “Icon” ready() function ?
What do You mean “off” ? Show print screen of that. Perhaps it is just icon is large and its origin point is corner ?

Tried it with a different image and got the same resultI have code that constantly checks for input and if the input is detected it duplicates the sprite.

Are there no errors in console ?
Is resulting off-position the same when project is window and fullscreen ?

Same results in fullscreen and no errors in console.

Let’s see if this has anything to do with duplication.
Don’t duplicate, create icon anew. From Your script I can see this is a Sprite ?

var itemd =
itemd.global_position = get_mouse_global_position()

This should create icon so its top left corner is at cursor
