My home computer, laptop and work PC have different desktop sizes.
When I remotely connect from home to work or laptop to work via Citrix, Citrix rearranges my desktop icons on my work PC.

I would like to backup my desktop icon layout so that after a remote session, I can restore them.

How do I backup the desktop icons (and their positions) on Windows 7?

Home PC: Windows 10. Laptop: Windows 7.

  • Your remote connection simply rearranges your icons, but does not delete them, correct? If so, would simply restoring the location of the Desktop icons suffice? – Twisty Impersonator Dec 4 at 2:02
  • Yes, restoring the positions would suffice. – Thomas Matthews Dec 4 at 2:04
  • Please edit your question accordingly. Requiring that the icons be backed up is likely to artificially limit possible answers that would otherwise be helpful to you. – Twisty Impersonator Dec 4 at 2:06
