Not the same as moving files (it remembers the layout)


Another reviewer claims that you can just move the files from Desktop to another folder to do the same thing. That’s not really true. This app makes the desktop icons disapear, but when you make them visible again, THEY’RE IN THE SAME PLACE! If you move you icons to another folder then move them back, everything will move around. I organize my desktop so that I can find things on it, and having the icons move around would be unacceptable to me. This app solves that problem nicely.

Awesome little app!

I sometimes have to present on my Mac, and I also use my Desktop as a catch-all for data extracts, loads of screenshots, and other quick files I can access easily. I do perioducally clear them away from the desktop, but in a pinch this app is great! One click and they *poof* disappear but they’re still accessible through Finder! Another click on the menu icon and *poof* they’re right where they were all along! Thank you for creating this app! It’s such a simple task, but has profound outcomes! Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!!!

Turns out just move all files from Destop in finder to “all my files"

after many minutes of researching, turns out all you had to do to get rid of desktop icons is to drag them onto a diffrent group like “all my files in the Finder window and boom all gone and clean looking. no downloading anything anymore. it was still a good app idea till i realized ima genius and now gonna delete it.
