One of my idiosyncrasies, is to have a neat clutter free desktop. I can look for files on my desktop using PathFinder but I hate the icons showing up all the time! :-)
So, here is the code to get rid of the icons. Fire up your terminal and punch in right away!
defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop -bool false # Kill and Relaunch finder killall Finder
If you want to show the icons, you need to do the opposite using ...
defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop -bool true # Kill and Relaunch finder killall Finder
