Desktop is such a convenient place to put a file or folder when needed to but if you don’t clean it up often enough it can easily become a clutter place that’s not so convenient to work with. We’ve covered a pretty neat tool called Fences that can help you organize files on your desktop by creating number of fences. However, if building a fence isn’t your thing, how about this?
AutoHideDesktopIcons is a lightweight portable tool that helps you make your desktop utterly clean by hiding all the icons from it. As you can see, it’s got a timer that automatically hides all the desktop icons after it runs out. Once the tool is launched, all desktop icons can only be shown up to 100 seconds, the maximum time you can set in the timer.
It’s a portable tool that doesn’t need an installation process to be able to run but you still can make it automatically starts after Windows boots. Just simply tick the option “Start with Windows” and the tool will automatically run after each reboot. You can also make it always stay in the tray to not bother you in front of your eyes.
Ultimately, you can tick the option “Hide taskbar” to make the awesome bar go away as well.
AutoHideDesktopIcons is completely free and compatible with almost all Windows system, both 32-bit and 64-bit editions.
