DesktopOK

Editors' Review

by   / December 01, 2009

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.
