A Comprehensive Backup
UIFriend's desktop layout protection works by backing up your icon layout periodically to
preserve a detailed history. Should something terrible happen,
you'll have backups going back days, weeks or even months.
Multiple Resolution Friendly
UIFriend keeps desktop icon layout backups that were created at different screen resolutions totally separate from one another.
This means that you can change the resolution without fear of UIFriend saving an incorrect desktop layout
into the backup collection.
In fact, with UIFriend, feel free to create a desktop layout that is optimized for each
resolution you use.
Intelligent Background Automation
UIFriend implements a sophisticated, behind-the-scenes backup and restore system that handles the most
common cases when your icon layout is likely to be compromised. This ensures that
you spend more time using your computer and less time managing your desktop icons.
For example, let's look at what happens when the display settings are changed.
Just before the display settings actually change, if the size of the desktop is about to change,
UIFriend backs up the positions of the desktop icons adding a new layout to the
Then right after the display settings change, UIFriend automatically restores the desktop
icons to the correct positions applicable to the new size of the desktop.
UIFriend's automatic backup saving is smart, too. Before creating a new automatic backup, UIFriend takes a look to see if
any of your icons have actually moved since the most recent backup was made.
If nothing has changed, UIFriend skips the backup
so that the backup collection contains a set of highly relevant and unique desktop icon layouts.
Full Compatibility With Windows XP
The Align To Grid feature introduced by Windows XP works to ensure that no two
icons overlap. If you try to use a program
to backup and restore your desktop icons
that is not compatible with this feature,
your icons often end up randomly offset from where they should actually be.
With UIFriend, there's no problem as it is is fully compatible with XP's Align To Grid feature.
While UIFriend offers top notch protection of your desktop icon layout, it also
offers flexibility for advanced users.
UIFriend's export feature allows you to save a
desktop layout to a file on your computer for later import.
You control where the layouts are stored, how they are named and when they are deleted.
Perhaps you have two or three very different layouts that
you'd like to periodically switch between. Or maybe you've got two
computers with the same desktop icons and you'd like to transfer the icon layout
from one to the other.
Whatever the case, with UIFriend's import and export features, the control is all in your hands.
