Info updated on:

Icon Restore 1.0 is a program to restore the icon layout in your Windows desktop.
Sometimes, when you make changes in the resolution of your screen, or enter Windows in Safe Mode, the icon layout changes, moving icons to different places that the one you assigned them.

Icon Restore 1.0 reliefs you from the boring and time consuming task of manually placing every icon again in its place, by restoring a previously recorded icon layout.

The program installs LAYOUT.DLL (along with the required registry entries) from Microsoft, adding two new options to the pop up menu: that opens when any Windows system icon (ex. My Computer) is right clicked. These options are "Save Desktop Icon Layout" and "Restore Desktop Icon Layout".

To record your desired layout, after installation simply place your icons wherever you want them on your desktop. Right click My Computer and left click on "save icon layout" from the pop up menu.

If your icons ever get moved, you can restore your layout right clicking over My Computer and left clicking on "restore icon layout" from the pop up menu.

I have used Icon restore for a couple of years and it is excellent. Now, I have Vista 64 bit and it won't work at all, is there anyway that I can use it with a 64 bit computer, I really miss having it.

Thanks
