I have over 300 website links on my desktop. all of which require painstaking replacment after an OS reinstall. in future I'd like to avoid this if I can, I've placed all of my favorites into folders and saved them to CD-RWs, and I'm using a device called DesktopOK which saves and restores the desktop icon placement with a few clicks of the mouse, what I'm wondering is, after I've returned the favorites folders to their original location, is there any way I can save the DesktopOK device onto a CD-RW in such a way that it can be operational after an OS reinstall ? for me this would be an amazing time saver !

Hi Kelly2,

The DesktopOK program creates a file DesktopOK.ini in which it stores the desktop icon positions and settings. This file should be in same folder as DesktopOK.exe. So copy the folder containing both these files to your CD-RW.

I hope this helps you :thumbsup:
