Icon Restore lets you save and restore your Windows desktop icon layout at the click of a mouse button. Well actually you need to right mouse click on My Computer and select Save Desktop Icon Layout. Then if your icons get scrambled you restore them by doing the same process and selecting Restore… Neat.
After installing Icon Restore, simply place your icons wherever you want them on your desktop, right click My Computer (or any ‘system’ icon) and left click on “Save Desktop Icon Layout” from the pop up menu. If your icons ever get moved because your computer entered safe mode or you changed the screen resolution, right click My Computer (or any ‘system’ icon) and left click on “Restore Desktop Icon Layout” from the pop up menu. Icon Restore is the perfect solution for people that have to change the screen resolution often.
