If you’re like me or most Mac users then your Mac’s Desktop is cluttered with files and folders. Take a look at one of my favorite Mac utilities. It’s called HiddenMe Pro. It’s also the perfect app to hide all the clutter on your Mac’s Desktop.
Not only that, HiddenMe makes it perfect for Mac users who give presentations or do some show ‘n tell with a projector, whether classroom or business meeting. Nobody wants or needs to see your Mac’s cluttered Desktop and they won’t have to. One click, no clutter.
The Name Says It All
Mac users can be divided into two groups. Those with clean and organized Desktops and Documents folders, and those with messy Desktops and Documents folders. HiddenMe won’t help clean up your Documents folder, but that’s out of sight from most everyone.
It’s the Desktop that’s HiddenMe’s focus, and that’s the one location on a Mac which gets the least amount of personal organizing attention but also suffers from the most activity; the place where we put files, folders, downloads, documents, photos and movies– before finally getting around to putting them where they belong, safely tucked into appropriate folders in the User folder or Documents folder.
With a single click, HiddenMe makes whatever is on the Desktop, well, hidden. Out of sight. Just like this.
See? Clean Desktop.
HiddenMe lives in the Mac’s Menubar so a clean, uncluttered, mostly invisible Desktop is merely a click away. Select the HiddenMe icon in the Menubar to reveal the pop down menu. Select Hide Desktop Icons, and, well, that’s it.
There’s no Step 2.
If you’re a Mac power user and prefer the keyboard to the mouse, and keyboard shortcuts to menu clicking, HiddenMe has a keyboard shortcut to invoke the disappearing icons. Whatever is on the Desktop disappears from view (but returns with another click; file icons are just hidden, not destroyed or moved).
There’s also a lite version of HiddenMe so you can do a test drive before upgrading to the Pro version which works on multiple displays.
Sweet. Just sweet. Desktop clutter is out of mind, so, for all intents and purposes it’s gone. Until you want it back.
