I’ve only used it for 30 seconds...
… but it’s awesome. Instant clear space. I clear my desktop regularly but I also use it as a to-do list of sorts, so I can’t keep it clear all the time. And the clutter was interfering with programs like Adobe Illustrator, where I could see the icons behind what I was working on; they’re distracting. This is the perfect solution.
It works for me.
There are ways to hide icons in the OS, but it’s not as quick. You can do it with termial too, but also - who wants to remember the commands. This app let me set a hotkey to hide and show my deskto icons for when I’m screensharing etc. Does what it say! I think it’s great. I’m not sure if the “it doesn’t work” reviews are up to date or not, but it certaily works for me. : )
How simple it is, just one click and it’s done. Since I keep my dock hidden on the bottom of screen, I was concerned that it might not work as usual when the icons were hidden, but it works the very same! So glad to find this and not have to use other work around methods. Thanks for making this available!
