How can i save and load the desktop icon's position from a file?
It is easy to save and load the desktop icon's position from a file, and it does not matter whether it is Windows 10, 8.1, ... or MS Server OS!
1.) Save Windows desktop symbol arrangement as a file!

Desktop Restore feature especially useful if you change the resolution of your monitor more then often, DesktopOK makes gamer in particular benefit from the tool.
2.) The new icons on originally free places?
The program works, but what I find very bad is: If since the last Icon-Backup new icons were added and the icons are messed up, DesktopOK is not able to reposition the known icons and the new icons to originally free To push places.
No, a free space is chosen, but after that you can save the desktop icons again.
Or activate the autosave. So many users even have the place to the stop full of icons.
