Ever play a game on your Mac and the icons get screwed-up badly when the screen returns to your usual display settings, after the game finishes? Restore Desktop v2.0 comes to the rescue.

Restore Desktop is a Mac OS Contextual Menu Plug-in that saves and restores icons' positions on the Mac desktop. Restore Desktop restores icons' position automatically during display resolution changing. Restore Desktop also allows you to restore saved icons' positions manually by Control-click on the Mac desktop.

How to use
Control-click (or right mouse button click) in the Mac desktop to open the contextual menu. The contextual menu will contain two additional items "Save Desktop" and "Restore Desktop". Select "Save Desktop" to save current desktop icons' positions for the current display resolution.
