Clean Up Your Mac’s Desktop

by Tom Mullaly on January 9, 2007

I’ve seen a few links to a neat little OSX utility called Backdrop that essentially hides all of your desktop icons with either a solid color or image. This is useful when you want to record a screencast or if you are giving a presentation and want to hide the cruft on your desktop. Although Backdrop works great, I like a similar application called Desktopple that does the same thing except that it can be started using either a hot key or by clicking on the applications menu icon. Desktopple is available in two versions – a free feature limited version and a pro version that costs $12.
