Desktop Icons

Terence Alva

I have arranged the icons on my desktop to facilitate ease of operations.
When I connect a overhead projector to my laptop, the icons shift and become
larger. Further, the size of the display on my screen increases in size.
After disconecting the OH Projector, the display returns to the original size
but the desktop icons need to be rearranged. Help needed to sort this out.

Not quite sure exactly which of these you're asking for help with - if it's
the last, then try Icon Restore from

Hi Olorin,

I need help with both issues.

Retention of Icon size and location when connected to an OHP.
Retention of Icon size and location when disconnected from an OHP.


I will try the soultion suggested for second issue.

The problem is not with your laptop, it's with the screen resolution of the
OHP. If the projector is set at, say, 800x600 and your laptop is at
1024x768, the laptop will change to whatever the projector can handle, or
what it is set to. I ran into the same problem using a Compaq laptop with
two different projectors; a 3M one and a Compaq one. I set the 3M one to
display at 1024x768, which it would do (the Compaq projector wouldn't go
that high), and set my laptop resolution the same and had no more problems
with traveling desktop icons.
