Desktop Icon Toy is a program that helps you manage desktop icons by setting various effects and layouts.
It has a user-friendly interface. The general settings allow you to modify the icon’s size, choose the hover effect, and select the lock type. My favorite feature is the one that enables you to arrange all your desktop icons in various layouts; you can select the shape of a clock, a circle, a cross, a spiral, an ellipse, a heart etc. In addition, you have an ability to add a special effect to the chosen layout; thus, you can set the icons to move one by one or all at the same time.

Another interesting function enables you to align the icons to a specific area of the screen. To use this option, you just hold the left button and move the mouse to the desired direction. There is also an icon hiding feature which is of great help if you want to keep your desktop uncluttered. You can set the icons to stay hidden when you are working with other apps, and let them appear when you really need them. What's more, this tool supports hot keys which allow you arrange the icons more precisely; in this regard, you are able to change the position of an icon with the accuracy from 1 to 10 pixels.

To sum up, this is a good application which helps you keep your computer screen uncluttered, arrange the icons with a single click, and take advantage of the above mentioned program features to get a clean and nice-looking desktop.
