ReIcon
Easily save and restore your desktop icon layout

Organising icons on your desktop can be as simple as dragging and dropping them into their new positions. Keeping this new layout is usually more of a challenge, though. Other users of your system can also rearrange icons at any time, and running an application which changes your screen resolution may also leave them in a mess.

ReIcon is an interesting free tool which offers a simple solution. Launch the program and click the Save button to save the current icon layout, or use the Restore option to reload it: easy.

There is a little more to the program, though. You can save multiple layouts and choose which one you'd like to restore. And the ability to add save and restore options to your desktop's right-click menu makes this very convenient to use.

There's also an option to view any individual icon layout file. If you want to manually edit a layout for some reason, remove one icon, perhaps switch its position with another, then you might do that here.

Better still, a command line interface means you're able to automate all of this, saving and restoring icons from a batch file or script. If you run a program which trashes your icon layout, then set up a script to save the layout, launch the program and restore the layout afterwards, and the problem will be solved, without you ever needing to see the ReIcon interface.

1.9 changes:

[Fixed] Delete key issue when renaming
[Fixed] After clicking restore button,Disable Auto arrange mark doesn’t change
[Fixed] After update ReIcon version,Restore Icon layout on Right click may use old version
[Fixed] A minor Cmd bug

Verdict:

A smart way to save and restore your desktop layout, easy to use yet with plenty of advanced features to explore.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.102

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.102 

• Introducing stickers! You can now download and send expressive stickers in chats. Tap the new "sticker" icon while in a chat to get started. You can also tap the "+" icon to download more sticker packs. If you'd like to create your own stickers for WhatsApp, visit whatsapp.com/stickers to get started.
• You can now easily search for GIFs right from within a chat. Just tap the "sticker" icon in a chat and then tap the "GIF" icon at the bottom.
• Consecutive Voice Messages will now play in sequence, so you don't have to press play on each message.
