Desktop with icons
Desktop without icons
Out of 10 people around 7 will always have a cluttered desktop in windows with lots of usefull and not usefull icons this I can say as per my experience from the time, I have been using computers for 5 years.
Even they know it looks very cluttered but they are used to using it although we have already posted on how can you clean your cluttered desktop automatically. But most of the computer users are much used to the large number of shortcuts they create on their desktop.
Yesterday, I found a cool application called Hide Icons, which lets you hide your desktop icons in a double click on the application icon which loads itself into the system tray ( as shown in the image below ).
You just need to double click on the application icon shown in the image above to hide your desktop icons. Hide Icons supports both windows xp and vista.
Note: But in order to make the application work successfully we recommend you please minimize any other opened application by pressing Window + D to show desktop, before double clicking on the application icon in the system tray ( as shown in the image above ).

Wow this one is a pretty decent tool. Another way is to really clean up your desktop or use a sidebar program.
“I have been using computers for 5 years” – wow, you’re so experienced. I wish I was like you.
Hi guys…You don`t need any downloads to hide your icons. All you have to do is right click on your desktop and where it says Show Icons, just uncheck that. To have them show again just put the check mark back on Show Icons. This is much easier than downloading a program.
Hope this helps someone
Carol it is a very simple way to hide your icon as you mentioned but double click is little more simple, thanks for the notification i also completely ignored it.
