Menubar item hides desktop clutter for screenshots.

Overview

Desktopple is for you if you've ever needed to take a screenshot and had to clean all of those icons from your Desktop before you could. Or maybe you needed to make a presentation and had to tidy up before hooking into the projector for the whole audience to see. Perhaps you just want to hide those messy Desktop icons so you can concentrate better on whatever task is at hand. Or, if you're like us, maybe you just like a squeaky clean work environment.

With Desktopple, you can quickly and easily hide all of your Desktop clutter. A quick trip to your menu bar is all it takes, and those icons simply vanish from view.

Desktopple is a Menu Bar item. Launch it, and it will hang out in your menu bar waiting to do its job. Click it to hide or show your Desktop, or to get a list of all of your options. If you want Desktopple to launch when you login, simply add it to your Login Items in the System Preferences.

Desktopple Features:

  • Backgound Choices - Make your workspace your own. Choose to hide your Desktop with your regular Desktop image, a different image, a smooth gradient, or a solid color. The choice is yours!
  • HotKey Support - Set up a HotKey, and giving yourself a shiny, squeaky-clean Desktop is only a keystroke away.

What's new in Desktopple

Version 1.1:
  • HotKey support for hiding your Desktop
  • Hide your Desktop with your Desktop picture as well as a solid color
  • Preference to add Desktopple to your Login Items

A lovely, handy little gem. Works beautifully. Since my menu bar is already heavily populated with goodies, it would be nice to have the option of a Desktopple icon with a smaller footprint....or perhaps just a small colored button. Anyway, thanks for this quite useful little freebie!

An excellent little app that really makes a difference. It really delivers on what it claims, no more no less.

This app is really cool. What it's missing is hotkeys and the availability to change the background to a picture, not just a color.
