Icon Restore is a simple application that can store the current position of all the icons on the desktop in order to restore them at a later time. The tool is designed to help you get back to the original position of the desktop items after they have been moved around. The application is straightforward and it works by placing a couple of entries in the context menu of My Computer.
Icon Restore installs LAYOUT.DLL (along with the required registry entries) from Microsoft. Two new options are added to the pop up menu that opens when any Windows system icon (ex. My Computer) is right clicked. These options are "Save Desktop Icon Layout" and "Restore Desktop Icon Layout".
Its purpose is quite clear, as a simple change of the resolution results in showing the item is total disarray. Arranging them manually is not a difficult task but an automated approach is simpler and takes less time to complete.
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. After saving the current position the tool issues a dialog window informing that the procedure has been completed successfully.
