Does it drive you mad when your carefully laid it ICON positions are all disrupted and move to the left or due to screen re-sizing are not visible. I highly recommend this Freeware application.
This tiny application operates as a Shell extension. It records the layout and positions of icons and programs on the Windows Desktop, and permits restoration of the layout. It appears to operate correctly under Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. There have been several reports that it works correctly under Windows Vista as well.
I wrote this program after severe frustration of having my layout trashed every time I switched screen resolutions. Sometimes other programs will switch screen size and trash your layout as well. This program is an answer to this problem, and I thought other people might find it useful too.
