Question: I want to hide my desktop icons while I'm working. How do I fix this ? I don't want to see any icons on my desktop.
Answer: It's really simple to hide all of your desktop icons while you work by uncheckingShow Dekstop Icons. (this will only apply to your visible desktop and not any directories like the Start menu, My Computer, or your taskbar)
1. Right + Click your desktop in any open area.
2. Select Arrange Icons By and uncheckShow Desktop Icons if it's currently checked. In the end it should appear like the example below.
