Toggle Desktop icons visibility

Recommended Posts

I like to hide my Desktop icons, specially when I'm going to present a keynote.


 This is a very simple workflow that executes a shell command to toggle the Desktop icon. I Hope  someone else find it useful.


Just use the keyword deskicons.

If it's not working properly (no change, or icons reappearing in a few seconds) try executing the following command in the terminal:

defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop 1


After that it should work fine.

When I use this, the icons disappear for only a second and then re-appear. This happened with an Alfred V1 workflow, maybe something to do with Mountain Lion?
