August 6, 2018.

A new version 1.2 of Icon Shepherd utility is available now for download! In this update, we are introducing the option to purchase licenses for business use and remove ads displayed by the software. If you don't mind the ads, you are still free to use Icon Shepherd on one private computer at your home, free of charge. For other uses, an appropriate license must be purchased.

This update also adds the capability to change some options for Icon Shepherd:

The Options screen of Icon Shepherd 1.2

  • Restore last used icon layout on start

    If you select this option, then when Icon Shepherd starts to work (whether launched by you or started automatically when you log in to Windows), it will automatically restore the last used icon layout. The last used icon layout is the one that you restored most recently. (Icon Shepherd assumes that that's how you want to keep your icons).
  • Maximum number of layouts to remember

    By default, Icon Shepherd remembers the last 25 icon layouts. This option allows you to change this number (between 1 and 100).
  • Check for updates

    Use this option to control how often Icon Shepherd should check for updates.

  1. We’ve moved from one PC to another and want to take icon shepherd (and the layout) to another machine – is that possible ?

  2. Steve: Yes, you can move the layouts to a different machine using the Registry Editor tool of Windows. First, export the following key into a file:


    Then import that file into the new computer. Hope this helps!
