Deskhide is an extremely useful tool that allows you to hide/show ur desktop icons. It sits in your quick launch toolbar and acts like the toggle desktop icon. This program is pretty self explanitory. Deskhide does not run all the time, like most desktop tools. It launches hides or shows your desktop icons depending on their status. Then it will terminate itself, therefore saving you plenty of your ram and processor cycles.
