How to Save Your Desktop Icon Layout

I've been using remote desktop a lot lately to access my desktop computer from my new laptop. Something that really annoys me is that because the resolution is different, it messes with the icon positions on the remote computer. That sucks, because then when I use the desktop computer my icons are not in the right places. (I'm using my desktop wallpaper as a way to organize my desktop similar to this post.)

I was happy to discover this tool for saving and restoring desktop icon layouts in Vista, especially since it works with Vista x64. It would be better if it would fix them automatically, but since restoring them is only a few clicks away, it isn't too bad.
