Move desktop icons to specific places

5 posts in this topic

Is there a way that you can play icons wich are on your desktop to specific places?

Like i want my recycle bin on the right bottom corner of my screen.

Is this possible?

If you can click and hold the mouse button your OK, but those icons have no control ID or something else.

Can this be done?

I don't think theres a control for each seperate icon, but I know the classname for the desktop itself is SysListView321 and the class is Progman. I would just minimize all the windows and MouseClickDrag it over. Although, I'm sure someone else here would have a much better idea.

Have a look at This Topic it may give some pointers on how to find the position of icons on desktop.

Maybe a stupid question, but why can IconSaver remember those positions while AutoIT or we can't.

IconSaver must use something to adress those icons or am i wrong?

Its seems there is not a normal simple way to do this, but i maybe have found a Workaround.

Is it possible to get information of a selected icon?

So if i click the upper left icon once and send a keystroke with "Recycle" the Recycle bin is getting selected if thats the only icon wich start with that part of the keystroke. Is it then possible to move that icon?

i.e. is it possible to get x and y positions of a selected icon?
