Description

Desktop Curtain is a simple tool to hide the clutter on your desktop, and help you focus on the task at hand. It's perfect for teachers, presenters, writers, developers, and anyone else that hates clutter and/or needs to take screenshots with clean background images.

Why waste time moving files and folders on and off of your desktop when Desktop Curtain can make things look spotless in a jiffy?

Desktop Curtain lets you set images via drag-and-drop or the standard file dialog, and it will remember your 10 most-recently-used images.

You can also control at what "level" the image floats (and hence, how much stuff it covers), and whether it affects all monitors or just one.

You can use Desktop Curtain to focus only on the frontmost application, too — or even the frontmost window, to really narrow your focus.

Desktop Curtain also runs in three modes, including a fully-invisible mode perfect for those who take screenshots.oh

What's New in Version 3.0.6

• Added retina graphics.
• Improved documentation.
• This version of Desktop Curtain no longer supports the option to make the curtain apply to a specific Space only.

Enormously Useful!

I make public presentations all the time. Desktop Curtain is the most important tool that I have for running my presentations cleanly. All of the junk on my computer stays nicely hidden from the audience.

Desktop Curtain also keeps my working environment under control, removing clutter from my workspace. I could not be more thrilled to have this little application!

Great for Webex and GoToMeeting

I do not keep a tidy desktop. It’s shameful but, there you have it. I’m a mess.

I also do a lot of web meetings where I am demonstrating or otherwise showing my system. People are nice to me but, I feel self-conscious.

Enter Desktop Curtain.

It’s true that I sometimes use it just for less visual clutter and that’s nice, but the big deal is that I turn it on before I share my screen. It makes it so that the demo is less distracted and looks a lot nicer.

I’ve been using it for a few years and never had one single bit of trouble with it. Go ahead and buy it.
