    or, you can set up two desktops

    one with, one without icons, (the gui provides for four desktops per user),and just toggle back and forth

    Create a file, paste the following...

    Code:
    [Shell]
    Command=2
    IconFile=explorer.exe,3
    
    [Taskbar]
    Command=ToggleDesktop
    
    Save file as showdesktop.scf
