Guides on emulating older applications

Desktop Resetter is a helpful little program designed to store (remember) the icon and window locations and sizes on the desktop (including popup windows). This information can be restored at a later time, if they should change or move. (Some programs tend to either change resolution or somehow mess up your desktop - crashing will also cause the desktop items to lose their locations.)

Architecture: PPC

Runs on any Mac running Mac OS 8 and higher

omg... I just popped an old Mac OS 8.6 rescue CD-R I made in 1999 and found Desktop Resetter on it. So many good memories all come back to me now. I remember apps changing the screen resolution and messing up with folder icons I used to put in the desktop corners Tongue With Desktop Resetter, I could recover my whole desktop icons setup in snap. My friend also had something similar on his Windows 98 PC Tongue
