    Can someone reccomend a program (preferably freeware) that will enable you to hide all of the desktop ICONS... and then bring them back fairly easily... like maybe a button on the taskbar or perhaps an F-key?

    Thanks in advance

    DAVID :) Happy Holidays!!!

    Right click on an empty spot on your desktop.. make the desktop active & then another feature of that is to hide icons.

    Least its that way in WinME.

    Savvy may well be right about ME.

    I'm running Win98 SE, and there it isn't possible, unless with TweakUI, or by editing the registry.

    Grtz.
