09. BACKING UP AND RESTORING YOUR DESKTOP. If you ever change your screen resolution, or a program you are using does this for you, you will no doubt notice that those neatly arranged desktop icons are no longer where you want them. It's a real pain to go through reconstructing the arrangement, so it's convenient to have a program that will keep your desktop icons backed up so that a simple restore can replace what you had before the mixup. There are a number of programs that will do this for you, and these are all free. Take your pick:

DESKTOP RESTORE at http://www.midiox.com/index.htm?http://www.midiox.com/desktoprestore.htm ;

SHOCK DESKTOP at http://www.docs.kr/entry/Download-Shock-Desktop-en ;

ICON RESTORER at http://fsl.sytes.net/iconrestorer.html ;

DESKSAVE at http://www.desksave.de/index.php?lang=en .
