Suggestions for desktop icon save/restore

Tanks for a great product I depend on every day!

I've looked for these, but have not found what seems to be an obvious feature:

1. (optionally) Tag a saved saved desktop icon layout, which will cause that layout to always be applied at login.
*** problem I'm trying to solve - after remoting into my maching (& some windows updates) my icons revert to the default vertical column ordering - then I have to go an find the menu and reapply my saved format. Would be nice if that was taken care of automatically (if I so wished).

2. (optionally) associate saved desktop icon layouts with the number of visible monitors
*** problem I'm trying to solve is my default desktop is multi-monitor, I often login remotely and when I do what I see in the remote window is the default vertical column icon layout.

3. Extra credit for being able to dynamically detect changes in the number of visible monitors and similarly reacting to that in a similar fashion.

Glad to hear you like DisplayFusion!

I think you might be able to solve all three problems using the Monitor Configuration feature. You can save each monitor layout as a profile, then assign the Desktop Icon Profiles to each Monitor Profile. Then, any time one of the Monitor Profiles is detected, DisplayFusion will automatically apply it's assigned Desktop Icon Profile :)

Hope that helps, please let me know if you run into any trouble.
