Hi,

Every time you start Launcher, the "Save" menu options reset meaning default is not to make backup when saving.

I was in doubt about how to best implement this, but with the current system, it is easy to add a new backup (but no automatic backup)

Hi,
sorry I wasn't clear with my request. Correct every time I change & save the config I create a new backup. Perfect.
There are now 12 backup folders - that's a little to much backup. It would be great if Launcher checks every time I press save how many backups still exists and if the number of backups is more than x The oldest backup will be deleted before a new backup is created.

I will consider if I can make a different backup system that is smarter. But I rather have to many backups than to few :)

(Especially since making a backup requires an active action by user.)

In the past couple of months I have lost most and today I lost all of my shortcuts (except the one I was adding) when saving after adding a new shortcut.

This is a great opportunity to get some last minute Round Neck Irregular Cutting Gown
