In my opinion, there is no reason to have icons on your desktop with windows 7. There is plenty of room on the taskbar for your most frequently used icons, every other icon can easily be found by clicking on the start menu. My documents, my pictures, other partitions or hard drives etc.

Unless in a work environment that demands it.

I don`t think what you want to do ( double click the desktop to hide the desktop icons ) can be done with windows 7 natively. If I`m wrong, someone correct me.

Not really what ?

Go into all programs and see if there is a program on your pc that does that, it may have already been installed.

Well, this is it`s description. Thought that`s what you wanted to do.


Hide Icons is a free program that can hide and show your desktop icons. Places an icon in your system tray. Clicking it alternately turns your desktop icons off and on. Can be set to load with windows.
