Just curious. This doesn't seem to work for Windows XP, what version of Windows is this for?

It looks great though!

For Windows XP, the menu is just a bit different.

First, right click on an empty area of your desktop. Next, highlight 'Arrange Icons By' and a sub-menu will pop up. On the sub-menu, near the bottom, is 'Show Desktop Icons'. Uncheck it and your desktop icons are gone. I have included a picture of the menus for you.

Hope I helped!
