Just gave my pc desktop a facelift:D Was looking for a way to hide my messy desktop icons so that my seasonal wallpaper will show nice and clear and stumbled across this article.
It gives a link to a program you can add to your quick launch bar to show/hide desktop icons with just one mouse click (similar to show/hide desktop )
Here's a before and after view of my desktop:)
In case you like my wallpaper you can get it here!:)
