    Utility that not only SAVES desktop layout but actually RESTORES it?

    I've tried several utilities that purport to save your desktop layout and restore it when something gets messed up.

    They all SAVE the layout (or seem to).

    The problem I have is that none of them successfully RESTORE a saved layout when you need it. Indeed, trying to use that feature doesn't appear to do anything.

    Currently using Windows 10 Home 64-bit.

    Just had Windows install the latest updates so I'm assuming I probably now have the Creators Edition.

    Can anyone recommend a GOOD utility that actually works to restore the icon size and layout when Windows manages to jumble them?

    DesktopOK, Download DesktopOK - MajorGeeks saved me few times when windows was playing tricks on me. You can even save few layouts and switch between them.

    That was one of the ones I tried.

    Didn't work for me to restore and it caused file explorer to crash frequently.
