Screenshot Helper for Mac2.3.1

21 September 2021

Gives a clean background for screenshots.

What is Screenshot Helper for Mac

Screenshot Helper shows a full screen window with a solid color or a desktop picture so that you can take clean screenshots without having irrelevant windows and desktop icons in the background.

The easiest way to get a clean desktop for screenshots on Mac OS X is to create a brand-new user account and log in as a brand-new user. But if you need to use your own user account for whatever reason and you have a messy desktop like I do, you can use this application to hide the actual desktop in order to take clean screenshots.

  • Support multiple screens.
  • Use the Preferences panel to change the color or the desktop picture.
  • Shift - drag the window to snap to the edge of screen.
  • Press command - B to show/hide the menu bar and the dock.
  • Press command - U to show/hide the mouse cursor.
  • Press command - E to cover the entire screen.
  • Press command - D to cover the desktop icons only.

What's new in Screenshot Helper

Version 2.3.1:
  • Fixed the sub-pixel anti-aliasing (font smoothing) detection issue on macOS 10.14.

If I need a generic desktop for a screenshot, I just set my desktop picture and quit the Finder. But this app has it's place.

...or you could use DesktopSweeper 1.1 for free and have a quick key shortcut to wipe your desktop clean of icons....then get them right back after your shot.
