Desktop Icon Manager for Mac

25 November 2020

Saves/restores icon positions on the desktop.

What is Desktop Icon Manager for Mac

Desktop Icon Manager (DIM) is an AppleScript which saves and restores the icon positions on the Desktop and Finder windows. There are applications and other scripts that do the same thing, so why is this one different?

DIM doesn't get confused when you store the icon positions at one screen resolution and then restore them at a different screen resolution. In other words, if an icon is at the bottom right corner of the display when the icon positions are stored then that icon will always be placed at the bottom right corner regardless of the screen resolution. There's only one application that I know of which does that, but they want money to do it. Other applications/scripts allow you to save multiple icon positions at different screen resolutions. That's fine if you want to adjust your icon positions for each screen resolution you use. My question is why? You got a Mac sitting in front of you, let her do it.

I can't tell you, Gregory, how happy I am that you updated DIM! What a great Christmas present!! (And I've something for you $$ for Christmas too!) Has always, truthfully, been my most favorite Mac OS application in the history of the Universe!!

It will be useful to have an auto save feature each 6 hours or so, and be able to restore the icons from a list os the last 6 Desktop icon savings.

Drag and drop anything onto DIM and DOES NOT keep the window open anymore on MacOS 10.14 (Mojave). Developer needs to fix this!

Temporary solution for now is to delete its preference:
(home) folder > Library > Preferences > com.parker9.DIM_2.1.plist

Great app so far, but I have run across one problem so far. I checked the box to restore Icon positions upon starting the program and now because it starts and quits so quickly, I cannot remove this option. Any help?

The DIM is a real time saver, especially if you have a lot of those icons neatly (de?)arranged on your desktop. Plus its icon is cute, and it's reliable, never failed on me, is quick, and — did I mention it's reliable? Ah, and also it has a really cute icon! ;) Seriously, just use it often, it's quick and easy! :)
