The program works, but what I find very bad is: If since the last Icon-Backup new icons were added and the icons are messed up, DesktopOK is not able to reposition the known icons and the new icons to originally free To push places.
No, a free space is chosen, but after that you can save the desktop icons again.

|Asked questions on this answer:|
- The tool is basically perfect - thank you! The only thing I miss now and then is to call Desktop-OK via the command line and thus load a certain configuration via batch file.
- I would like to integrate the program into a batch because I also start some other things with this batch. Among other things, a program that shows me the desktop icons as a list.
- The point of creating a * .dok file is that you can save this file on any drive in order to be system-independent. That works too. The * .dok file is generated. But why can't you load it? Doesn't the Explorer open for you when you click on 'Load icon layout from * .dok'?
- I know that I start the program with a simple DesktopOK.exe but not how I let it automatically load the last memory or how I can run this whole process in a hidden way! Would be very nice of you if you could help me !?
- Could you possibly tell me how I can call the program in a batch script and load the last storage?
- Is there a possibility to restore the saved icon post positions via CMD / batch?
- Is there a listing of the command line parameters? Can I use the command line parameter to restore the icon arrangement (name: Standard)?
