Rbreb13 Posted February 14, 2004 Report Share Posted February 14, 2004 Control Your Desktop Icons When you temporarily change your desktop to a lower resolution—while using Safe mode, for example—Windows can wreak havoc with your careful positioning of desktop icons. A free download, available at www.pcnineoneone.com/tweaks/layout.zip, lets you save and later restore your icon layout. Download Layout.zip and unzip it to extract two files. Move Layout.dll to the Windows\System32 folder. Double-click on Layout.reg to add it to the Registry. If you now right-click on almost any of the standard desktop icons you'll see two new items: Save Desktop Icon Layout and Restore Desktop Icon Layout. Choose the former whenever you change the layout; choose the latter when you need to restore it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
