    Desktop Layout (SP1)

    How can I backup my locations of favicons and shortcuts so when they get messed up I can put them back quickly? This happens when I connect a second display to my Toshiba laptop.

    Thanks, Bruce

    For desktop icons, try Desktop Restore.

    For Favicons, try AM-DeadLink.

    Both are <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>

    Have you tried to Right click on the desktop>arrange Icons by,
    then check "lock Web icons on desktop"?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    I insalled Desktop Restore and it does the job for my Vista. Thanks Hans. Bob, the Vista right-click menu is not the same as the menu you showed. There is no locking feature -- that I can find.

    Best, Bruce

    Bob inadvertantly posted an XP desktop. There is not corresponding right click entry for Vista.

    Right 100%, Joe.
