I want to make a program which modifies the positions of the icons on the desktop, but I can't figure out exactly where the icon positions are stored on XP. I looked around on Google Groups and came across 5 or 6 completely different answers to the same question. Some said there was a file called desktop.ini, some gave Registry locations, some said there was a hidden file with a .ds extension on the desktop, but when I checked, there was no such file. I saw some source codes for altering the position of desktop icons, but they were mostly for Visual Basic. I need a way with MMF, so I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone knew how. Hope someone can help!
.bin there done .dat

Um... You can set icon size and spacing in the Screen properties window?
