I am aware of those options... However, I want the files to disappear. I do a lot of web development and programming and during an iteration my desktop gets extremely cluttered, but I can't delete the files because I may need them in the future. Any other suggestions?
Ideally I would highlight all of the files I created and right click or execute a key combination to move them to c:\development\<date>\*.* and at the same time move them off of the desktop.
You can right click on the desktop, click on view, and then click on the last entry, Show desktop items, which remove or replace what ever items you have on the desktop.
I would still like to have icons on my desktop though...
