I'm running XPsp3 (same happens in XPsp2).
The right click menu shows save icon position but does not show restore icon position.
When I test under Vista Home Premium both save and restore icon positions appear.

Very strange - I tested it on Windows XP SP3 and after choosing the Save Icon Positions, Restore Icon Positions appear correctly. It is also visible after quitting and starting TrayIcon Pro.

I will try to test on some other computers to see if I can reproduce it somewhere.

Best regards,

I've uninstalled/reinstalled/rebooted
I've tested this under Sp2 and now XP sp3 with the same result.
Never do I see restore icon position...quite frustrating
I've had to revert to using an external program (desksave)

Please try the following - quit TrayIcon Pro, run regedit.exe, browse to the key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MetaProducts\TrayIcon Pro

and remove that key. Then run TrayIcon Pro, Save icon positions and see if Restore appears.

that fixed the problem, thanks..
without doing anything both save and restore icon position is now on the menu

I performed a save icon position
HOWEVER the restore icon position did not movie the icons back to the positions they were saved from..
something is still amiss.

I did the same save/restore with the external program (desksave) and the icons moved to their saved positions.

update.....

whoops....the restore icon position line just disappeared from the menu

Oh. I am trying to reproduce it here, because otherwise it is hard even to guess what could be wrong.

what srikes me strange is how the restore icon position appeared briefly on the menu and how it disappeared....
if you can't duplicate it I understand....
at some point stop trying since I have a workaround, thanks

Yes, I will post here if I find a solution or fix for that. Thank you!
