Hiding Desktop Items

Post by Ellsinc »

Okay so I'm a complete noob here.

Basically on all the pictures of peoples desktops with Rainmeter, they have no desktop items.

Where are they? My desktop looks stupid with them all in a mess in the middle. Is there someway to put them in a app or summit like that?

Thanks in advance.

Right click --> Arrange Desktop Icons --> Uncheck 'Show Desktop Icons'
Or google a program to do it for you.

or you could use Tweak UI to remove recycle bin icon and use a dock for all your desktop icons, or standalonestack2 (move them to somewhere else in a folder and open that folder with standalonestack2)
Zero at programing, zero at writing codes, so far 2 at making images
But I'm good at copy/paste, and I not always like this

Sarge did a post over at deviantART with a download of a program called 'Clean Desktop v1.0' http://sgtevmckay.deviantart.com/art/Clean-Desktop-v1-0-165093568?q=favby%3Akarmat111%2F10895435&qo=22

I've been using it, and it works perfectly.
