Well thanks to Tweak UI which allows me to turn off all the icons and Skrommel's FadingTaskbar, my desktop shows nothing other than the background image when idle.

That said I'll therefore posts a few of my favourite wallpapers (all are from deviantART):


Indeed most of the popular walls from the Abstract category I tend to like :)

Top half is today's mess and my taskbar. (I could make a guessing game out of naming what all the icons are for, in order, and give out a prize to whoever gets the most right?)  ;D

Bottom half is with everything minimized. Taskbar is on autohide.

PowerPro (set to autohide), Rainlendar and usually a lot of icons. I cleaned up my desktop the other day, that's why it looks so tidy...

Nobody wants to see my desktop. Honest. Truly. Believe me.

I use it as a holding area for all the files and projects I'm working on it is TOTALLY full of file icons & a 1600 x 1200 desktop completely full of icons is truly a scary, uhh...wondrous thing to behold.

I used to be like innuendo, as im pretty messy by nature. But after trying to scan 343 icons because windows decided to re-arrange them "because it felt like it"  i decided to get organise, and minimal is now my thing. I now shudder and despise messy desktops, a bit like an annoying ex-smoker who down the pub surrounded by smokers.

With so many people showing their desktops full of icons I feel compelled to show how I launch programs. I use a custom start menu which is simply just a directory structure of shortcuts set as a toolbar on the taskbar.

Here a pic of it currently:

Install the UXTheme patch (5.0), and you can use any of the visual styles found on various locations throughout the web. www.deviantart.com is my favorite for finding them :)

Would you believe mine is the classic blue screen with only four icons on it?

Stop laughing. Please stop.  :o

Icons and passwords both drive me crazy, especially when I have to recognize or remember yet another one.

The Start Menu (Classic) and a good file manager - who could ask for more?

My desktop is EarthWatcher - thanks to jgpaiva  :Thmbsup:

No icons visible, except when I wanna have a little fun with Desktop Icon Toy v. 2


Icons are hidden in Win2K Explorer and in PS Tray Factory
- not the nicest solution, but efficient:
