This small program saves and restores the current locations of your desktop icons, but that's all it offers. IconSort resides in the system tray. From the tray icon's context menu, you can save the current desktop layout. If the desktop icons have been moved for any reason, select the restore option to revert back to the original positions. Additionally, the program allows you to save multiple layouts to your hard drive and restore any one you'd like.

Users who organize their desktop icons by moving a group or types of icons into different locations are the ones who will find this application beneficial. If you often encounter desktop icon rearrangement problems, then you should consider this freeware as an option.
