Editors' Review

+
Highly configurable and easy to use, Iconoid makes quick work of customizing your icons' appearance and behavior. The program cannot be set to launch on start-up, but after a manual launch it's easily accessible via the system tray. The help files are extensive and useful, and the number of icon variables you can modify is impressive. Those looking to gain more control over the icons on their desktops will find Iconoid helpful.

"Not a must have.? Well for Me it is.!!!"

February 19, 2009  |  By svixa

 |  Version: Iconoid 3.8.4

Pros

Small, undemanding, clean,.. some unique practical functions, some funny, harmless functions and it never argue with you. It isn?t about the money either; it?s free, but priceless to me...

Cons

It?s a bit shy. I scavenged lots off forums to find a way for my 64bit Vista icons to remember their place in life? lots off wannabe and complicated solutions to find, but not Iconoid? Well don?t be varied, I?ll putt inn a good word for you!

Summary

I use my desktop actively, and my icons are sort off categorized by their position relative to the four corners? I know! But it works for me! With multiple computers, Remote Desktop Connections and a full HD big screen TV. I often have to change resolution, and all my carefully placed icons are a mess!
But no more! ? Thanks to this unpretentious, resource-modest, funny little app. Not even big enough to carry a little virus with it. Thanks!

"Excellent Little Programme"

April 25, 2008  |  By lbpfan

 |  Version: Iconoid 3.8.4

Pros

Iconoid is perfect for maintaining a tidy, attractive desktop and/or concealing your icons and shortcuts from nosy people.

The only item displayed on my desktop is a Yahoo! Weather Widget.

"Dance, you icons, dance."

June 07, 2007  |  By BC1963

 |  Version: Iconoid 3.8.4

Pros

It's neat that this program will make your desktop icons disappear, allowing you to see your wallpaper without the obstruction. The absolute coolest function has to be watching them dance around the screen or swapping positions, a function avalable from the system tray icon. It also allows you to define a "hotspot"; moving the cursor here will close all open windows, similar to a "boss key".
