Iconoid 3.8.5 description
Iconoid - a free Windows desktop icon manager

Iconoid is a small program that helps reduce the clutter and confusionof the Windows desktop. Iconoid is a useful utility that will improveyour desktop view.

Iconoid runs either as a system tray icon, or completely hidden. Itwatches where your cursor moves and looks for changes to the desktop.

When the cursor moves off of the desktop, Iconoid might hide thedesktop icons so that you can see the wallpaper better. When you movethe mouse back to the desktop, the icons reappear.

Iconoid also looks for changes to the wallpaper (file size or name) andif it sees that the wallpaper has changed, it forces the icon colorsback to your specifications (color or transparent).

Here are some key features of "Iconoid":

Automatically hide and display desktop icons
Remove the colored box behind icon text
Automatically set the colored box behind the text to an optimal color for your desktop picture
Quickly and easily minimize all of the windows on your screen
Save and restore the positions of icons
Insure that icons do not move when you change screen resolutions
Save icon locations for each screen resolution individually

Iconiod is very customizable and comes with complete source.

NOTE: Some Iconoid functions do not work whe "Active Desktop" isenabled. When Active Desktop is active, these functions are greyedout .

What s New in This Release:

Modified Color tab
Added a slightly hidden link to start the desktop control panelapplet when in Active Desktop mode. Cursor changes to a hand whenhovered over the text that explains that active desktop is active. Imay externalize this better later.
Fixed message overlay on the Colors tab when both active desktop and cursor drop shadows are enabled.
Cleaned up Tray tab
Removed Scramble Icons option
Reordered items to match tray popup
Regrouped items in tray (save/restore, icon text options, icon hiding options)
Cleaned up Desktop tab
Added radio button to not have Iconoid change the desktop color
Added radio button to use user selected color
Removed checkbox for using color at startup since the new radio button does that
Added a slightly hidden link to start the desktop control panelapplet. Cursor changes to a hand when hovered over the groubbox title.
Changed system tray context menu to have 3 distinct settings for hiding options
Reordered Tray and Desktop context menus to match each other and to put most used options first.
Now more responsive to turning on or off Active Desktop and Cursor Drop Shadows
Fixed Several problems with hiding the taskbar.
Taskbar hiding works independently of cursor hiding. It used to seem unpredictable. Now The taskbar is hidden with the icons.
Taskbar hiding now works in Always Hide mode.
Maybe fixed the fix of the fix of ... of the tray getting stuck below other windows. Maybe.
Miscellaneous bug fixes:
Switching transparency from tray failed
Sometimes wallpaper switching was not recognized
When desktop crashed, Iconoid stopped functioning. Now it waits 3 seconds and hooks the new desktop
Fixed phantom square box that shows up occasionally such as when Microsoft s task switcher power toy shows Iconoid s window
Removed some dead code and code that was there to theoretically fixthe mysterious settings loss problem (I think Phil found that bug).
Removed the -wait option. That may need to be reinstated... we ll see.
Removed warning message about lost settings. Again, that may be wishful thinking.
