looking for hide show GROUPS of desktop icons app
« on: October 04, 2007, 03:51:39 PM »
i was at Reading uni open day a week ago (in in the UK) and noticed that a desktop on display had the icons split up into sections, with the footer giving the description of the icons above in the clearly defined section. it also had an up arrow, so assumed it was some kind of desktop app. sadly it was not.

I dont want to use virtual desktops. i cant get on with them. I want an app that hides and shows GROUPS or sets of icons on the desktop.

Surly this must be possible/ already done?
anyone know of one? im sure i cant be the only person in the world that wants it

Hmmm...I'm not exactly sure what you are looking for exactly.

Iconoid is a program that can auto hide, sort and save positions of desktop icons.
I`m a firm believer in the philosophy of a ruling class, especially since I rule.

in a somewhat similar discussion here, there was a mention of this shareware program called: Desktop Organizer & Arranger. maybe this program will be able to help you..
