      AW Newsletter 16.15.0 — 4/22/19 —Desktop Restore App

      With 100+ Desktop Shtcuts this is a great app to Restore Shtcuts IN their custom-arranged Locations after a Glitch. I’ve been faced with that twice.

      Wanting some evidence of Dates for Multi-saves when they occur, the Custom Save-Restore To a File is the only way to go. Can’t Name the saved file as far as I can tell in the Std Save. I don’t have the nerve to Test it but I trust the Older Geeks partners know what they’re doing. Thanks to them!
      Only tiny unknown I have is the Save function says Save Icons to Layout [ 1920 x 1080 ] (32) and the multi-monitor example shows (48). WHAT are those (32, 48 numbers)?

      I’m unable parse most of what you typed but I can answer the last question.

      WHAT are those (32, 48 numbers)?

      They appear to be the icon size based on each desktop’s settings.

      I’ve used that over the years, actually I only tested destkp restore’s restore once, for windows 98SE.
