On the Windows desktop, you have arranged the icons according to a specific system. Each time you change the display using one of the submenus of "Arrange Icons" in the context menu of the desktop, Windows then resets the arrangement to the unclear standard setting. Even if you share the calculator and a single user account with other people, there's often trouble. After all, everyone has a different idea of the perfect Windows desktop. You miss a feature to save icon positions.
2.) Why should I know where the DesktopOK.ini is saved?
Some virus scanners are quite aggressive and even scan the DesktopOK.ini, so there is a delay in saving the desktop icon layout. You can exclude the Desktop OK configuration file from scanning. Which may lead to better behavior when saving the desktop icon positions!
I would like to make a copy of this file in order to find it again in case I reinstall the system.
Where is the data file for the desktop stored? If I buy another computer, can I transfer data?
There are many icons on my desktop. I sorted and arranged them thematically with much effort and care. Now it has happened twice already after the installation of updates that Windows has automatically rearranged all the icons on the left edge of the screen. All my work was in vain. Is there a tool I can use to save my icons?
Can I somehow save, view or make a backup copy of the saved desktop icon layouts from my Windows 10?
Can you please tell me in which DesktopOk file the icon positions are saved?
Desktop icons do not retain layout after 1709, 16299.64; Input request does not save entered commands Hello, after every restart there is "cabbage and turnips" on the desktop. I rarely had this phenomenon in the past, mostly after a program reinstallation, but now after each restart of the PC, without anything being changed. Very annoying and time consuming. Have with program DesktopOK tried to turn off annoyance. But then the computer becomes negotiable, freezes, eternal reaction times. The prompt field does not save the entered commands.?
I just want to know where my Icon layouts are saved so I can back them up. I got an upgrade on my PC and all of my desktop icon "saves" did not restore with the program on my backup restore.?
