What is ICU - Icon Configuration Utility?
Restore your desktop when the icons get “rearranged”.
Melba23 and I found we were working on very similar ideas to restore the Desktop icons to their normal place if they became “rearranged”. Vista seems to like this doing on occasion just for fun – but we all know some applications and games which change the display resolution or move icons around. This annoys “tidy” people who like their desktops arranged “just so” – I am particularly thinking of this desktop when I say that!
We combined efforts and here is the result of our labors.
Operation is easy – press “Save” to store a particular configuration and “Restore” to reset the icons to the saved positions in the selected configuration file. “Delete” allows you to remove unwanted configuration files from the list. There is a command line option so that the restoration can be run via HotKeys if required (that is why the script warns that it should be compiled for full functionality). You can decide what to do with any icons that have been added since you last saved the configuration file – the default is to put them in the top-left corner, but you can also banish them way off-screen or, more sensibly, specify a location for them.
