Utilities to save and restore the Windows desktop icon positions.

I find I store (temporarily) more and more links on my desktop – my memory jogger. And what a bugger it is if something glitches and the entire desktop full of icons relocates automatically to fill the left of the screen!

 

The solution – a small utility to save the desktop icon positions. 

 

I’ve found two that work well:

 

Desktop Icon Save and Restore probably the easiest to use as it’s a right click anywhere on the desktop to access.

 

Icon Restore requires a right click on the My Computer (or any System) icon.

 

They are now part of my standard desk load stuff.
