Note from PC Pitstop: We recently asked our TechTalk contributors to recommend a favorite FREE application or tool that they currently use. This post is the Windows Tips response to our request..
DesktopOK is a nice little utility if you sometimes work with different screen resolutions (or otherwise have your desktop icons moved around on you). I oftentimes remote into a work system from my laptop, and when I get back on the real work machine my desktop icons are scrambled. DesktopOK is there for me.
What this utility does is allow you to save the layout of your desktop icons, name that layout, and later restore that layout. So if for any reason your icons get scrambled, just launch DesktopOK, pick the appropriate layout, and restore them.
