Restore your desktop icon positions with DesktopOK

If you spend a lot of time changing your Windows desktop resolution, there's a good chance you also spend a lot of time rearranging your desktop icons. That's because every time you change to a new resolution and then change back, Windows tends to knock your desktop icon layout of whack.

A few months back, we looked at Icon Restore, a nifty little tool that lets you save the state of your desktop icons and then restore them. DesktopOK does pretty much the same thing. But unlike Icon Restore, DesktopOK lets you save and restore multiple layouts.

DesktopOK hangs out in your system tray when minimized. When you're getting ready to change your display resolution, you can just pop it open, save your state, and then play with your resolutions as much as you like, safe in the knowledge that you can restore your desktop to that state when you're done. Or you can keep a couple of saved layouts handy for different situations.
