Desktop Icons Layout Manager is an intuitive and very simple to understand software utility designed to offer you the means of storing the position of your desktop shortcut to a DAT file, enabling you to restore it with a single click, should they get rearranged.
The program experiences a fairly basic and uneventful installation, following which you can launch it and start working with it immediately, no prior experience required.
Desktop Icons Layout Manager’s GUI is quite accessible and easy to handle, featuring two main buttons that help you save and restore the shortcuts' location on your screen.
When you work on the computer frequently and for long stretches of time, you get in the habit of organizing app shortcuts and file icons in a precise fashion, which makes perfect sense to you, though it may not to other people.
However, for reasons that are sometimes out of your control, like installing some new software, the position of the shortcuts on your desktop changes and you find yourself looking for your regular apps and files, or opening the wrong ones, by mistake.
Desktop Icons Layout Manager aims to help you with that, by creating a DAT file storing the precise location of each icon on the screen. This way, whenever the shortcuts are shifted from their original position, you can click on the restore button and get them back to where you need them to be. However, you cannot create multiple data files, for different working situations, as you can only use one at a time.
To sum it up, Desktop Icons Layout Manager is a handy and efficient application that aims to offer you the ability of keeping the shortcuts’ location on your screen in a DAT file, allowing you to restore them with little effort, should they be moved.
