What is Desktop Curtain for Mac

Desktop Curtain is a simple tool to hide the clutter on your desktop. It's perfect for teachers, presenters, writers, developers, and anyone else that hates clutter and/or needs to take screenshots with a clean background.

What's new in Desktop Curtain

Version 3.1.2:
Bug fixes and improvements:
  • Worked around a bug in macOS 11 Big Sur that prevented "Isolate frontmost window" from working properly.
  • The direct version once again offers Spaces support, which we had accidentally removed in an earlier update.

I use Desktop Curtain every day and love it. The only thing which should still be enhanced is an option to hide the desktop on a second display (and only on this) when using multiple displays under the "Affected Displays" settings. In the current version one can only hide the desktop on the "Main display" as a selection. That enhancement should be implemented quiet easily – and then Desktop Curtain would be perfect – at least for me.

This app is the closest to my favorite and now defunct DeskShade by MacRabbit. If you opt for the MAS versus (the free version you can license both MAS and standard download) then you can change the background from the curtain. Hot keys round this out nicely in regards usability (unlocked version). Version 3.0.1 is out and the price is now $4.99.

Awesome! This app is a must-have for me, as I'm often running out to client meetings at the last minute and never seem to have time to clean up my desktop before a presentation. The new v2 of this app is Awesome! Now works on multiple monitors, and has lots of different customization options... all for $1.99??? This app is an absolute steal! RUN dont walk to the Appstore and grab it!

Works great, but has view issues. It only activates on the main monitor and is not active on a second monitor. When you are using spaces and you show all of them to, lets say, move a document window from one space to another, you can accidently grab the curtain and it moves. It should stay put in this mode. When activated, it shows the current application documents but hides any others. I want it to hide just the desktop.

Indispensable for holding presentations with demos (so the audience doesn't see the mess on your desk) or making pretty screenshots with a background.

I use this all the time! My desk is a mess, but it need to be so. Desktop Curtain hides my desk mess and when I need access to the mess: exposé! One request: Clicking the curtain make Finder active. Well, two requests, Dropping files on the curtain -> copy them to desktop.. Thanks for all your great apps!
