Hide desktop icons?

    I am doing slide shows and I'm going to use my wallpaper as my 'interstitial' slide, so I don't want anything at all cluttering up the desktop.

    I've either deleted or hidden all my icons on my desktop with one exception. How do I get rid of the Recycle Bin?

    Have you tried this? Right click on the desktop, and choose "Arrange Icons by" then "Show Desktop Icons"

    .... then there are appls for controlling desktop icons to greater extent, like in the wincustomize package, where you can ditch what you want, create new a bit more complicated desktop themes etc.

    Doh! Thanks. (Wish I'd found that before deleting all my other icons...)
