Description of DesktopSweeper 1.3

EditByBSEditor: DesktopSweeper is a freeware—but donations are welcome—APE Module (the equivalent of Unsanity's haxies) that allows you to hide—and show Again—the Finder's Desktop icons. I wrote it because CodeTek dropped that feature from VirtualDesktop 3.0 after they got me addicted to it in previous Versions. I use to have lots of icons on my Desktop, but I don't want to see them until I need it. My Desktop looks much better when they're hidden.

DesktopSweeper doesn't work by covering the Desktop so your desktop background is not affected at all, even if you use an application that displays animated or screensaver'ed backgrounds. It's also very useful to Cocoatech Path Finder users who keep the Finder running in the background.

Note that if you log out or Quit the Finder while icons are hidden, the next Time you'll log-in (or launch the Finder) the icons will be displayed where you expect them.

Requirements: Mac OS X 10.5 or higher
Platform: PPC / Intel
