Is there a way to "Save" the location of the Desktop Icons? Every now & then especially after changing screen resolutions or running certain software, my desktop icons (Windows XP SP2) all become moved over to the left side of the screen, & aligned in columns. I want to be able to revert back to where I had them!!  Maybe by backing up the desktop folder, or are the icon locations stored elsewhere? Like in the Registry?
Please help !
