Desksave is a small application that allows you to save the icon arrangement of your desktop, which makes it useful in case a screen resolution change messes up the position of your icons.
The program is easy to use, indeed it doesn't require installation, you just have to unzip the downloadable file and execute the program. After the program is executed, you will be asked to save the icon layout as the primary layout for the current screen resolution. This primary layout will automatically restore the icons arrangement after any resolution change. Nevertheless, you can manually restore the icon layout from an already saved file. The Desksave files will have the DSV extension and will contain the screen resolution and the icon arrangement. It is important to mention that the program only saves the icon arrangement and not the shortcut files. So if you delete a shortcut, it won't be restored. The program automatically creates a backup file after an icon layout is restored.

In the program options you can set different parameters such as auto restore after start, ask for confirmation before restoring, etc.
