Wish I could do something that pretty!
It was "digged " some days ago.

That's full too. Guess I've got some housekeeping to do.

Great stuff everyone.

There is a way to hide your desktop icons. I am running Windows XP.

-right click on a blank spot on the desktop
-arrange icons by
-uncheck show desktop icons

They are all still there, just hidden. You can click desktop on your taskbar on the bottom of the screen and the desktop items will appear in a list.

It's a great way for you to enjoy the picture on your desktop.

Re: What's on your Desktop?

There is a similar way on a Mac.

Make a folder in your User folder (I call mine "My Apps" and have made sub-folders like Graphics, Media, Office, Utilities etc.) Put alias' of your applications or documents inside that folder then add the folder to the far right side of your dock (beyond the very thin separator line)

Hi Ken,

http://www.ipi.fi/~rainy/download/Ra...Lite-2.0.1.exe

It's Rainlendar, the lite version (linked above) is free. It can be customised by adding new skins.

Ro,

Try creating pop-up folders on your taskbar, that's where I keep all my icons.

That's cool, Gary! I've added quickstarts for programs in my taskbar, but hadn't thought of folders -- neat!

Re: What's on your Desktop?

You're welcome CJ.

I've got so much junk on my box that you wouldn't be able to see the screen if I left the icons there, so I keep them categorised in folders on my toolbar.

Occasionally I keep things in the right category as well.
