Does what it says

Thanks to HiddenMe, I now have a clean desktop anytime I want. To see my folders, I simply click on the HiddenMe icon in the menu bar and everthing reappears on my desktop. Very functional and easy to use. I have encountered a problem though: When I have the stuff on my desktop hidden (that is, when HiddenMe is active), my wallpaper refuses to change, and it begins to tamper with the wallpaper on my other desktops. Maybe there’s a way around it, but I'd caution anybody who likes to use the "change picture” option (in System Preferences>Desktop & Screen Saver) to skip this app. As long as I do’t have the "change picture" option selected, however, HiddenMe works fine.

Not the same as moving files (it remembers the layout)

Another reviewer claims that you can just move the files from Desktop to another folder to do the same thing. That’s not really true. This app makes the desktop icons disapear, but when you make them visible again, THEY’RE IN THE SAME PLACE! If you move you icons to another folder then move them back, everything will move around. I organize my desktop so that I can find things on it, and having the icons move around would be unacceptable to me. This app solves that problem nicely.

Awesome little app!

I sometimes have to present on my Mac, and I also use my Desktop as a catch-all for data extracts, loads of screenshots, and other quick files I can access easily. I do perioducally clear them away from the desktop, but in a pinch this app is great! One click and they *poof* disappear but they’re still accessible through Finder! Another click on the menu icon and *poof* they’re right where they were all along! Thank you for creating this app! It’s such a simple task, but has profound outcomes! Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!!!
