Software Product Description

In Windows, when screen resolution changes, the order of the desktop icons very often gets mixed up. With DeskSave it is quite easy to recover a previously saved icon layout either manually or automatically. Software developers are given the opportunity to test their applications in different screen resolutions without disarranging the desktop icons.


  • Saves the icon layout according to current user and screen resolution
  • Restoring works properly, even if 'Auto Arrange' or 'Align to Grid' (Windows XP/Vista) is activated
  • Accepts command line parameters
  • Auto restore after resolution change, program start or resume from standby/hibernation
  • Starts with Windows, if desired
  • Saves icon layouts to files
  • Undo after restoration
  • Provides backups of current and saved layouts
  • Optional portable mode, leaves no traces on the system
  • Supports multiple displays
  • Supports English and German language
  • Optional shell extension for the desktop, thereby easy access to functions without background process
  • Very small size (DeskSave.exe: 78 kB, Shell extension: 79 kB)
  • No setup routine, just unpack the archive and DeskSave is ready
  • Easy deletion of all saved primary layouts, backups settings, DeskSave is completely removable
  • Supports Windows 98, 2000, XP and Vista (32 bit)
