I just made a ‘good mistake’ and thought its worth sharing.
I wanted to create a directory on my desktop, and then I clicked an option I hadn’t noticed, and suddenly, all the links and files on my desktop disappeared. I thought things got deleted until I checked windows explorer\Desktop to see they were still there.
anyway, heres how to do it all by yourself.
To hide your dirty desktop:
right click on your desktop,
select ‘arrange icons by’
select/uncheck ‘Show Desktop Icons’
there you go: your desktop becomes squeaky clean:
to restore, just right click on the desktop again, just like you did above and check ‘show desktop icons’.
I find this quite good, especially if your desktop is the messy type and you need to hide the mess ‘at least for awhile’ until bigboss passes by.
