save and restore your favorite desktop!
DesktopJanitor stores your desktop and restores its status, including Desktop Theme, Window condition (status), Icon locations, Screen settings (Height, Width, Depth), Application Switcher status. This small utility lets you assign several applications, scripts, and documents for your convenience. It's really convenient after kids play around your Mac and some pop-up windows are missing, icons aren't there where you don't want, Badly behaved game changed your monitor settings. Moreover, you guys can keep your "particular" desktop settings and change it as necessary.
How to use DesktopJanitor?
It's pretty simple. Just check boxes for storing items and press "Store Desktop" button. Please refer details here.
It's Free for Parents with Kids!
This small utility was developed for Parents with small kids, who start to play on Mac. They're smart enough to learn and enjoy but are sometimes lazy for cleaning up your desktop. If you have kids, it's free (no certification necessary!) because I do understand your situation. Just e-mail me for your comment. However, if you feel comfortable to support my software development and coffee consumption, this small utility could be worth 2 $. Send me check or equivalent stuff (old or new die cast "Hot wheels", beautiful card or picture, stamp, anything is fine) to address below.
Are you interested in AppleScript or RealBasic?
If you're interested in AppleScript or RealBasic, I believe DesktopJanitor is one of good sample. RealBasic is nice tool for rapid interface generation (also object? oriented) which AppleScript lacks. AppleScript - RealBasic combination is something to look at because they make up for each other. Feel free to contact me for programming discussion. I also have been spending many years on "Object - oriented world", I still believe Smalltalk is the best language form the view of rapid development (RealBasic is nice but not best due to its incomplete treatment for Object).
If you have any comment, feel free to e-mail me. I could modify this utility and fix bug(s) as per your request.
