Why save the desktop icons
Especially for users who often have to change the screen resolution, such as webmasters or gamers. Or also for potential users who often have to work with a projector on a notebook. (Here too, the resolution on the notebook is happy to change).
After this change, an icon chaos can be found on the desktop as if a bomb had struck. Likewise, when working with docking devices, desktop bars and windows, the icon position shifts and is not correctly restored if this was not anticipated by the respective program!
The advantage of DesktopOK is the size of the program, less than 300 K, also that no installation is required and the 32 bit version has no disadvantages compared to the 64 bit version, so it has an EXE for all MS Windows OS. Simply place it on the desktop and get started. The program also has many other tools!
Due to the integrated additional desktop tools, it is almost indispensable on every Windows PC, so the name is also desktop OK and not just Icon Save. I would like to expand it with other useful functions, so it lives up to the name, you can find these in the Tools menu, most of them are self-explanatory!
DesktopOK is a random product from FavoritenFreund, but has long been one of the most popular programs in Germany.
