Saving the desktop

Hi Experts,

How do you save the windows desktop on a windows 98 se computer and have windows use the saved desktop when there is a problem.

Thanks in advance.

You can copy the whole Desktop folder to some other location. But, it will not preserve the order and position of icons. Also, some of the desktop elements are generated by windows registry settings.

So, to make a perfect copy would be to make a copy of the Desktop folder and the system registry, I think.
if you are talking about a complete backup (in case of a crash) i would suggest an image program, like Acronis Drive image :  www.acronis.com/

Enterra Icon Keeper Deluxe saves and restores Desktop icon layouts.

Best wishes!
