The Windows operating systems provide you with a small amount of desktop icon arrangement profiles. For this reason, applications like Desktop Icon Toy were created: to offer you extra options when it comes to arranging your screen icons.

The utility lives on your System Tray from where you can choose the preferred icon arrangement layout and configure the program's settings according to your needs. You won't need much computer experience in order to handle this app as it provides you with very simple to configure settings.

Desktop Icon Toy gives you access to several icon arrangement profiles but you can create your own if you want to. The app also lets you save your favorite icon layouts in case you wish to use them later. Furthermore, the utility enables you to hide desktop icons, enable animation feature (icons start "dancing" when you hover the mouse cursor), etc.

The one thing missing from this application is an option to define a global hotkey for immediately hiding the desktop icons. You can only configure the program to hide desktop icons when the app is launched.

Other than that, not much more can be said about this tool. It does exactly what's being said on the homepage of the developer, without slowing down the performance of your system. So, you should try this app if you're looking for an easy and quick way to arrange your desktop icons.
