The majority of us are unable to enjoy the background image or wallpaper image on our computer, due to the background being awash with icons.
A workaround to this problem is a small and lightweight software utility called AutoHideDesktopIcons.
AutoHideDesktopIcons has been engineered to automatically hide your desktop icons after a predetermined time up to 100 seconds. For example, I set the software to hide the icons on my desktop after a period of 20 seconds. To reactivate (or show) the icons, I simply left mouse click anywhere on the desktop. After 20 seconds, the icons will disappear again. There is even a setting to hide the taskbar, if you want.
