I have to switch between the external displays very often through the day - external monitors, smart board, projector etc.
Switching the resolution usually makes the right mess of the arrangement of icons, which gets really annoying especially when I have a lot of them.
Is there any simple solution to lock them? Im sure someone (IBM?) must have thought of that (?)
my laptop is x60s
thanks a lot!
I often arrange my desktop icons in unusual ways around my wallpaper. So, a change of resolution, or the booting of a live Linux CD, or sometimes just a reboot will mess up my arrangement. I would like to know how to make it "stick" too. This way when someone points you/us to the solution we'll both know.

The nice thing about this utility is that it is accessible by right-clicking the desktop and selecting one of several options: Save, Restore, Custom Save/Restore. You can save many different layouts if that's what you want/need. It's not an automatic way of restoring/locking the desktop icons when switching resolutions but it may work for you.
