Advanced Desktop Shield Editor's Review

It’s always difficult trying to keep your system exactly how you want it when letting others access it. A good example could be a public computer in a library, internet café, or a computer at home which other people use. You may have your desktop set out exactly how you want it, including wallpaper, screensaver, shortcuts …. How annoying would it be for someone to go and change that?! Advanced Desktop Shield may be able to help.

Advanced Desktop Shield basically saves a snapshot of how your desktop looks at a particular moment in time, including the different aspects of it. If it’s changed or edited in any way, Advanced Desktop Shield has a snapshot to revert back to. It’s very easy to save a desktop ‘snapshot’ – just click Save within the Advanced Desktop Shield main menu.

Advanced Desktop Shield can be used to create many different desktops for yourself, depending on what you’re using your system for at that time. It by no means can only be used to help revert your desktop back to how you left it. Setup specific desktop environments for word processing with all your applications ready, for internet browsing, for a gaming session, and easily switch between them by loading your desired desktop within the main window.

If you’re trying to control your computer a little more, use the Lock desktop mode. This will mean that once your computer is restarted, it’ll revert back to a present desktop of your choice, removing any changes other people have made.

I can definitely see Advanced Desktop Shield having some use and being very helpful to a lot of people. However, it’s not one of those must have applications in my opinion. As easy as it is to use, it’s not essential for most people. If you want your own desktop that doesn’t change, setting up different user accounts per person seems like a lot more cost effective. If you are against different user accounts and you like the sound of what Advanced Desktop Shield can do, take a look at its free trial. Overall, I’d rate it 3/5.






Advanced Desktop Shield Publisher's Description

Advanced Desktop Shield - security utility is a must for public access PCs located in school or university labs, Internet cafes, libraries and other public places where you need to stop users from changing desktop wallpaper and screen saver, deleting, creating and renaming desktop icons, changing display settings and so on. With Advanced Desktop Shield you can backup, restore and manage your desktop layout and desktop layouts of your users. Desktop layouts are saved to files, which include all files and folders located on the desktop, placement of desktop icons, desired wallpaper and screen saver.

Desktop management includes creating desktop layouts for different purposes such as gaming, working, surfing the Internet, and providing different users with their own desktops. Using the program is very simple: just place desktop icons on the desktop to required positions, select wallpaper and screen saver using the Display item of Control Panel, double click program\'s tray icon and click the Save button to create a new desktop layout file. If desktop icons ever get moved or deleted by user or after entering the safe mode or changing the screen resolution, just open the program and click the Load button to return the desktop to any previously saved state.
