Now you'll get the finder's preferences menu and under general you will see, "Show these items on the Desktop" and uncheck Hard disks.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 5, 2007 5:03 PM (in response to Randy FitzPatrick)Hi there,
I like to keep files on my Desktop for quick access but would like to hide these files when viewing the actual desktop wallpaper - is this possible?
I've found the option to show/hide the drives as mentioned above, but not to hide desktop files (like image files, Word documents, etc).

Sure. Have you tried using the Stacks in Leopard? You can create your own file in Finder, drag it over to the dock and add whatever you want. If you have a lot of stuff, it will show in a grid instead of a stack, so it's easily viewable, just like on the desktop. Check out the Leopard video on the Apple website. I've gotten away from storing files on my desktop and am using that feature instead.Powerbook G4, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
