Save and restore desktop icon layouts.
When the icons on your Windows desktop are moved out of place, you have to hunt around to find what you want and you can't work as efficiently. The most common way to lose your icon layout is when switching to a smaller screen size. Windows shoves the off-screen icons into view, but doesn't put them back when you return to the larger screen size. WinTidy can remember your desktop layout and restore it for you. You can place the icons by hand, or use one of a dozen predefined layouts to automatically arrange icons in the order you choose.
Save the arrangement as a named layout that you can restore at will, or associate it with the current screen size. When the screen size changes, WinTidy can automatically load the associated icon layout. And if you want to pack your icons into the smallest possible space, WinTidy will put the entire desktop into "small icons" mode. WinTidy 2 was written by Neil J.
