When connecting via RDP to my desktop computer, the icon layout on the desktop is crunched into (usually) a smaller screen than the multiple screens that I use at home.

So when I log back in at home, the icons are messed up.

A very useful utility is Desktop Restore from Midiox. Its a small utility that installs on your PC and gives two right click options on the desktop:

Midiox Restore Right Click Menu

Midiox Restore Right Click Menu

If you have chosen Save Desktop… before you used RDP, returning to the messed up icons, you use Restore Desktop… and everything is the same as it was before.

Very useful.

About Phil

I have been working as a software developer since 1983. This blog could have been called "From Fortran 77, C and Cobol to C# in 20 (not so) easy years", but it doesn't sound quite right somehow. Besides I'm talking about what's happened since 2003, not before!
