  1. Background My desktop icons shift around often when I extend my screen or connect a higher resolution monitor to my laptop, or when a game crashes in an awkward resolution. Recently I've not been having very much luck with programs and scripts that save desktop icon positions. I know there are various examples on this forum - but I've been frustrated by them as well as other options (eg: an outdated layout.dll shell extension) For the record, I use Windows 7 64-bit ; I haven't tested this on anything else, but that was probably part of the problem. From some research it appears desktop positions can be saved in one of several different registry keys; older programs may not be searching for them all. So, I decided to write my own crappy program that *did* search multiple locations for position settings. TL;DR Made a program to save desktop icon positions; checks for multiple settings before attempting. Sauce Anyway, here's my badly-informed bug-ridden spaghetti code that does what I need: Note: See slightly cleaned-up code in a reply below! #RequireAdmin #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> Global $results[11];elements are array[5]= 0:$display_name 1:$bag_key 2:$bag 3:$valueName 4:$valueDisplayName Global $ctrls[11][5] Global $selected = Int(IniRead("itempos.ini", "settings", "selected", -1)) Global $uiOps = GUICreate("Desktop Position Options", 350 + 20, 100) Global $txSel = GUICtrlCreateInput("Not Selected", 0, 0, 350, 20, $ES_READONLY) Global $btSel = GUICtrlCreateButton("...", 350, 0, 20, 20) Global $btSav = GUICtrlCreateButton("Save", 0, 20, 350 + 20, 40) Global $btRes = GUICtrlCreateButton("Restore", 0, 60, 350 + 20, 40) uiResetOptions() Global $uiSel, $btRef Local $hadSettings = load() uiPopulate($results, $ctrls, $uiSel, $btRef, (Not $hadSettings));refresh if didn't cache settings GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $uiOps) If (Not $hadSettings) Or $selected < 1 Then GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $uiSel) WinActivate($uiSel) Else GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $uiSel) WinActivate($uiOps) EndIf ;------------------------------------ While 1 $amsg = GUIGetMsg(1) $msg = $amsg[0] Switch $msg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE If $amsg[1] = $uiOps Then Quit() GUISetState(@SW_HIDE, $uiSel) WinActivate($uiOps) Case $btRef uiPopulate($results, $ctrls, $uiSel, $btRef) ContinueCase Case $btSel GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $uiSel) WinActivate($uiSel) Case $btSav save() uiResetOptions() Case $btRes restore() uiResetOptions() Case $ctrls[0][0] MsgBox(0, "Position Information Locations", "This window lists system icon position settings" & @CRLF & "This selection may help if restoring settings does not work.

It also limits you to using one of the first 10 profiles the scan results in. Sorry about having to kill/restart explorer when restoring positions - nothing else worked for me. Clarification for the ItemPos text: from what I've read, it is <Resolution>(<Monitor>). I'm unsure how settings behave when you have icons dragged from one screen to the next and restore one of the screens.
