Do you have awesome wallpaper that’s obscured by all those nasty little icons cluttering your desktop ? Well, here’s how to make them all disappear, at least temporarily…
Win XP Instructions:
A pretty easy process here.
Just right-click your Desktop , Arrange Icons By , then click the ” Show Desktop Icons ” item.
Why the PhD’s at Microsoft decided it was a good idea to stick the “Show Desktop Icons” item under the “Arrange Icons” menu is a head scratcher for sure, but that’s where it is.
Windows Vista Instructions:
Almost the same procedure here, just a slightly different location.
Right-Click your desktop, and under View un-check “Show Desktop Icons”.
Now bask in your awesomely un-obscured wallpaper!
