Auto Hide Desktop Icons

Auto Hide Desktop Icons is a free portable program. As the name suggests, it can be used to automatically hide desktop icons and even choose to hide the taskbar in Windows as well. I have tested this to hide taskbar on Windows 11.

Key features include:

  • Select which mouse button to use to display the hidden desktop icons.
  • Set desktop to a color when icons are hidden.
  • Hide taskbar.
  • Hide desktop icons permanently.
  • The ability to set and use a hide timer.
  • Start with Windows (run as a Windows service).
  • Option to Start minimized.
  • Multilingual (supports most native languages).
  • Small program with a tiny footprint at roughly 40KB.
  • Free and portable software (can easily be stored and run from a removable USB flash drive).
