    Windows 7 Ultimate RC 7100

    This one-trick pony does what it was designed to do and does it well under Windows 7. It restores your icons to their last saved position should an app or game pull a fast one on you. There are other utilities which do the same thing, but if this is all you want look no further.

    DeskSave - Save and restore the positions of the icons on your desktop

    Welcome to
    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.

    Features of DeskSave 8.2.1:
    • 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
    • Auto save at logoff
    • Unicode support, layouts are saved UTF-8 encoded
    • 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 (32 bit only)
    • Very small size (DeskSave.exe: 81 kB, Shell extension: 75 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 and 64 bit

    Windows 7 RC

    I just discovered JARTE, a word processor with tons of features and small footprint.

    It runs great on W7 RC 64bit.
