Does windows have desktop icon save states?

My computer has taken quite a beating last night, power went out 4 times sporadically, thankfully I have a voltage regulator.

The funny thing is.. before the first blackout, I had rearranged a couple of files/folders, and desktop icons, and whenever I would turn the computer back on,everything was laid off the way it was before I arranged it, it's a little bit funny...


Second question.. anybody who is used to TPLINK wireless adapters, is it normal that whenever the adapter's driver gets outdated it will let you know with a BSOD? Whenever I get BSOD's they are always related to my wireless cards driver being outdated, it's a little irritating..

I use a program called DesktopOK to remember my desktop icon layout.

What works for me to remember the position is clicking Refresh on the Desktop's rightclick context menu.

I'd get a more stable wireless adapter which presents zero problems.

Greg, is that documented anywhere? I've not heard of it before.

Sorry Rich, I should have said it's what always works for me.

I'll have to give it a try. The only disadvantage I can see to that method is if for some reason the icons do get messed up there is no way to put them back automatically like you can with DesktopOK.

Thanks
