Mac OS X FAQ: How can I hide my desktop and desktop icons?
As we all know, our Mac OS X desktop can get a little cluttered from time to time, and it sure would be nice to be able to hide that clutter. As I Googled "hide desktop icons" and "mac hide desktop icons", I realized there weren't any good solutions out there for this problem, so I decided to create my own. This led to the creation of a Mac OS X application I named "Hyde".
Hide desktop icons with Hyde
I won't write too much about Hyde here, as I created a page specifically for it, along with several YouTube videos to help you understand how it works. But, in short, Hyde is a mini-application I developed to let you hide your Mac desktop icons.
Here's a link to the Hyde product page:
