  • Quite useful utility, but I don’t add desktop icons and prefer to use rocketdock which is much more better :)

    It’s been ages since I used xp, but doesen’t it have a “hide desktop icons” feature already? in the right click menu on the desktop somewhere.

    And I personally don’t remember what my desktop looks like :)
