The end, I hope, to this little problem of mine, is a $20 program named Desktop Icon Toy
- and it really is a piece of toy. I was so charmed by the features of this little app' that I forgot all about 'free' and 'always hide icons' and 'right-click menu', but have taken an all new attitude:
icons on the desktop can be funny!
This screenshot was captured at 10:37 >What screenshot?
Will someone get this stupid attach system a useful help section!!
Hmm.. on the screenshot the icons are forming a clock, and the clock is correct.
Of course the icons can dance and whatever
you would like them to do - Icon Toy has MANY
features - but the prime feature to me is that they stay all hidden until mouseover (if that is what you want); they will not even display if I place the cursor in the middle between two icons! This is the way I would have liked skrommels program to act. And this toy-program is precisely as tyrannical as I wanted the other programs, I've tested, to be; no more displaying the icons for a second hundred of times a day - no, the icons really stay hidden all the time until mouseover - and I kept my right-click menu. Superb!After edit: Sorry for the harsh words in red: this is really strange to me:
The picture does not display in my Firefox - only in Internet Explorer 6 ???
