Remember icon positions on Windows

How to restore icons to original position.

When changing resolution or remote logging on a Windows computer, I often had a problem with restoring icons to original positions.

I found Desktop Restore on this site and solved all problems. Desktop restore also has a command line version (that’s what I used).

To use the console version, just make 2 shortcuts of DesktopCmd.exe (or DesktopCmd64.exe) and add these switches :
save /y – for the first one, to save the icon positions
restore /y – for the second to restore icons

The /y switch answers yes to program questions. Read the software documentation for more information (like multiple monitors).
