Windows 7: Is there a auto arrange desktop icon hotkey?

Is there a auto arrange desktop icon hotkey?


I know that you can right-click on desktop > view > check "auto arrange icons", but is there a shortcut/hotkey button that currently exists? I would like to just push a single button to quickly line them up for me, I do not want the auto arrange to be turned on always, just when the icons get a little bit out of control and needs a quick sort.

Is there a hotkey that does that already, or does anyone have a idea/solution where a shortcut with that functionality can be created?
