Let's face it, compared to something like the iPhone, the Windows desktop looks pretty boring.

Desktop Icon Toy lets you jazz it up! Easily arrange your icons in shapes, animate them, even have them race around the desktop. But not only that, Desktop Icon Toy lets you save your icon layouts, so you won't need to reposition them after a Windows upgrade, or a change to your screen resolution.

Tortuga @Rod Johnson Hello :)
The Policy states:
-Transfer of a license to another owned computer is not allowed
What does this mean? If the PC/laptop dies, can't we transfer to the new one?
It's a rather strange rule, since nowadays everybody changes or upgrade often!

Hope this is sorted out. I am ready to buy, as I used to have it from a promo @GOTD, & really miss it
Peace

Rod Johson Sure, the license can be transfered to other computer so long as it's your own computer. It only restricts not being used more than one computer at the same time.

Tortuga Hello Rod :)
Thank you for your prompt reply!
I don't really understand the limitation ...
As I said, I previously had this prog installed on all my PCs/Laptops. This is not a 'On Demand' prog, like a player, a converter, Excel, etc. It starts at Windows Start Up.
How then, can it not be used at the same time?
I open the PCs & laptop on my LAN in the morning & use them where I need (kitchen, living, upstairs, garden, etc)
It's not really logical asking people going 'round to continually open/shut the machines all day long. And anyway I need the other PCs opened to access *stuff*.
I planned to purchase 2 licenses for me & my husband, so do hope you can see the conundrum of this limitation.

Peace

Rod Johson It's ok to use one license for all your own computers. One license only can be used by a single user

Kat D Does the software have an export/import feature so I can copy an arrangement to my second computer? Would also be useful when having to reformat a drive.

Rod Johson Yes, there is a feature in the 'Option' panel to export/import the settings.

Tortuga @Rod Hello :)
Yes, of course. Anyway I won't let my husband touch my machines, as he messes everything, "thinking" he knows stuff ... Because really, clicking "Next" is fun ... *sign*

Me happy !!! Just bought 2 licenses - YEAHHH!!
Peace
N.B.: Thank you for the reminder abt the "Export" feature. It exports as a .reg file.
As I didn't find an "Import" button/feature, dbl clicking it, does it, right?

Michael R. Having not so much 'fun' in mind, I'm wondering, if it is possible to define the number of columns/rows of the icon-'matrix' (per default (Without DIT) it seems to be 16x16 icons on my 1980x1080-display, Win10)?

Also I found out, having set the icons to 32x32, there is no way back to the original size (probably 16x16). 'Restore Layout' doesn't do that. With 32x32 there are nevertheless this big, that my background-image is quite overwritten. Perhaps you could add a way for the user to keep his original size (or add 16x16)?

Rod Johson For the exported .reg file, yes, double click it to import the settings.

For the icon size, you can hold down the Ctrl key and then scroll mouse wheel to resize the size.
