As a computer power user, I love to do a lot of things — coding, photoshop, design, publishing, documents, excel, data analysis, and the list goes on.
I find that my MacOS desktop starts to get cluttered, and it stresses me.
I have a huge 43″ Phillips 4K screen, I want every pixel to look beautiful.
The best hack I could share for MacOS is how to hide your desktop icons.
1. Open MacOS Terminal — click on the search icon and type “terminal”
2. To turn OFF the desktop icons, copy and paste the following:
defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop false; killall Finder
That’s it. You can find all of your desktop files in Finder, just like before.
Doesn’t this just look beautiful, zero clutter.
To turn the desktop icons back ON, type this instead:
defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop true; killall Finder
