Saving your desktop icon layout

More than one of my clients have remarked on how many icons I have on my desktop… this morning I went looking for a utility to save that icon layout (it would take me forever to redo it if anything ever happened to it) and found one in PC Magazine’s utilities archive from PC911.

Download and save the two files to /Windows/System32/ and double-click on layout.reg. Now when you right-click on any of the ‘standard’ desktop icons (like Recycle Bin), you’ll get the option to save or restore the desktop icon layout.

I hope I remember this the next time my desktop gets screwed up…
