Auto-Load Desktop Icon Profile

Description
The function checks regularly, if the monitor setup has changed. In case of change it checks, if a corresponding Desktop Icon Profile exists and applies it. The profile name is built using the resolution and Y-position info of each monitor except the primary monitor where the Y-Position is 0.
I use this to automatically have the desktop icons arranged in my laptop, when I put it in a docking station or take it out.
Use the function 'Desktop Icon Profile - Auto-Save' to store your profiles with corresponding names. To make it work, place the following in your startup folder: \DisplayFusionCommand.exe -functionrun "Desktop Icon Profile - Auto-Load"
