Probably does not work with Windows 10

It seems it does refresh desktop after each SAVE, which moves all icons to default (i.e. sorted by system) positions.

I use DesktopOK since 2-3 years without any Virus-warning

about DesktopOK · · Helpful Not helpful

My opinion is, that the virus warning cannot have a real background.

Otherwise one of my different virus protection software(s) on 3 computers would have detected the virus, because I use DesktopOK every day on all my 3 computers.

The very good ranking (place 9 of 67) on http://www.chip.de/downloads/DesktopOK-64-Bit_42644766.html also indicates, that DesktopOK is clean and Ok.

On http://www.chip.de/downloads/DesktopOK-32-Bit_42644474.htm l 94% like DesktopOK, only 6% do not like it.

Currently flagged with warning?

There is currently a warning (as of Dec. 23, 2012) of a Trojan being present at this application's homepage. For the record, I checked and could not find one. I have had absolutely no problems with any software from SoftwareOK - especially malware problems - in the years (~2) I have been using them.

Try your own virustotal scan before deciding against this application / developer.

about DesktopOK and Fences, Desktop Restore · · Helpful Not helpful

I prefer DesktopOK to Fences:
Fences is very good too and able to group the icons with frames=fences. Frames are not possible with DesktopOK, but groups are possible.
DesktopOK cannot group the icons with frames, is more simple, portable, extremely light weighted and uncomplicated.
With DesktopOK I can arrange the icons around a desktop background picture in the centre of the desktop, and can call back the desktop-icons-positions e.g. from the status 3 or 5 days before. You can store up to 32 icon-posittion-sets.

DesktopOK is unique and works great!
DesktopOK is functionally better in my eyes than the alternatives such as "Desktop Restore". I am enthusiastic. The program covers an urgent need super and should actually be contained in Vista.
