HiddenMe 1.0

This program helps you immediately hide icons on your desktop.
2.3.8 (See all)

HiddenMe is a simple to handle Menu Bar application that provides you with an easy way to hide all icons from your desktop. This program comes in handy whenever you wish to start shooting a video tutorial of an app and it's imperative that you have a clear desktop in the background.

From its main menu you can select the Hide and Show Desktop icons options and set the program to launch at login. I like the fact that it doesn't take long to make the necessary desktop changes and doesn't need many CPU resources to apply the new alterations.

What's more, this version of HiddenMe offers you an additional option to automatically hide desktop icons at launch.

The only feature I'd add to this application would be a global hotkeys option for hiding and revealing the icons within my desktop with a single key press.

To summarize, HiddenMe is an app that sits quietly on your Menu Bar and helps you immediately hide and reveal icons on your desktop. This program is very easy to use, doesn't use many CPU resources, and is free to use on any Mac computer.
