    Save Desktop Icon Layout on 32 bits & 64 bits Windows.

    *** I tested it on Windows 7 x64)***
    How it works: 1) Organize your icons as desired, 2) Hold Shift, + Right click, SAVE CURRENT SETTINGS. DONE !!
    If it gets messy for any reason, Hold Shift+Right Click, LOAD SETTINGS(it will appear in popup menu)

    My desktop bugged out example (All icons from monitor 1,2 and 3, going into 1, due to 3d turn on, off, playing sc1, or changing resolution, or benchmark flicks)

    My desktop quickly organized, after loading saved settings, putting all Icons back to each display(monitor 1,2, and 3)

    Hello there guys,

    First of all, I would like to say I am not the one who developed this beautiful software... i just found it online and am sharing the link with you guys...

    Are you one of those like me that will use a computer for a life time, all of a sudden you can no longer find anything on your computer OR desktop because it's all messy? ... Then you decide to organize your desktop icons to kind of motivate you to organize the whole pc, all of a sudden, your playing a game, and/or change the resolution, when you see, ALL your icons are piled to the left of the desktop(big chunk) and now you won't reorganize it again for another 2 months ?.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAh YOUR PROBLEM IS OVER !!!...Now weather you have a 32 bit, OR 64 bit os, (Vista, 7, 8 test, or even XP) you can organize your desktop.

    Hold SHIFT + Right click on desktop, and SAVE icon layout

    !!! Anything bad goes,

    you Shift + Right Click + Reload Layout...

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHHA !!!!OMFG !!!!This is less one life headache to me, since my desktop is about 1 TB big, it is really hard to keep track... now this will make it keep clean ALWAYS. Enjoy !!!

    well maybe it is useless to you... but it is not useless to me, and I hope it also helps others...

    Maybe your activities don't involve things that make the resolution change, or Dual monitor, or tripple 3d monitor,or what ever might make your icons go from organized, to piled to the left as default every time you do sertain thing...

    I mean, for the amount of space it will take(nothing) and for how easy it is to use, I don't see how this can be useless...
