\"Auto Hide Desktop Icons\" is a lightweight portable Windows program. If you use desktop backgrounds, it helps you to see sometimes the wallpapers clean and in full bloom.
With an automatic hiding and showing feature of the desktop icons, an adjustable timer and arbitrary activation options. It is the right desktop tool if the desktop is awash with icons so you can see more of your desktop background!
As an optional feature: you can also activate the Auto Hide and Show the Task Bar feature.
Have something from your Wallpaper, of course, only if you used one. But even if not, you can try this freeware tool. An installation is not required and if you not satisfied, you can delete it quickly.
