    A tiny application that hides desktop icons?

    Last year someone posted a link (maybe even the file itself) that hides all the icons on the desktop. It was slick and simple. I put a link on my quick-start menu. I made use of it now and then - very useful when you're running a demonstration or presentation. Anyway, I've replaced my computer but forgot to get the file. Searching the forum left me empty handed, so I'm hoping someone (Alan?) knows this file and can lead me to it.

    Thanks!

    No program necessary - in XP right click an unused space on the DT, then select Arrange Icons By | uncheck "Show Desktop Icons".

    Thanks but then I checked and found itis up to version 3.8.5 so maybe best to go to the site and check as both of our links from the posts are the same <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    No, not Icanoid

    Yeepers you folks are fast! Thanks!

    I did find that icanoid post, but that product has far more features.

    That right click tip is a real winner. I can't believe I've never encountered it before.

    I'm still interested in finding the original applet should it jog anyone's memory.
