Editors' Review


DesktopOK is a basic, compact program that lets you save and restore the positions of your desktop icons. It's nothing fancy, but if you frequently end up with a desktop full of scrambled icons, this program could make your life just a little bit easier.

The program's interface is basic, and although it's fairly easy to figure out by virtue of its lack of features, some tool tips for the buttons would have been nice, especially the "Punch the Icons" button, which rearranges all of the icons on the desktop, as we learned the hard way. Fortunately, we'd already used DesktopOK to save our icon layout and were able to restore it easily, but we'd have been pretty irritated if we'd clicked the Punch the Icons button first. Using DesktopOK is fairly straightforward: simply click the Save button to save the current arrangement of icons and Restore to fix them after they've become disorganized. You can save multiple icon arrangements and name them for reference. The program comes with a brief HTML Help file that opens in Internet Explorer, which is mildly annoying. Overall, DesktopOK certainly isn't sophisticated, but it is an easy-to-use tool for tidying up your desktop icons after they've gotten out of place. We like that it's small and portable, making it easy to keep handy on a thumb drive.

DesktopOK is free. It comes as a zip file and is accessible after extraction with no need to install. We recommend this program to all users.

"Elegant little app"

Simple, easy - does what it promises


None as far as I've found


I tweek things.....resulting in a mess of icons everywhere more often than not! Sigh.... This little program is just what I needed. All I need to find is where the icon for this program has landed, open, click restore and I'm back to work.

It also has this fun feature - punch the icons - which randomly distributes all the icons. Then you can highlight whichever layout you prefer and presto chango back to normal.

"program performs as advertised"

very easy to use and the interface is perfect for newbies.


none to report after three months.


If you want a program to remember your desktop placement this little program is perfect. I you change the arrangement of your icons and then change your mind, just restore it with Desktop.
