    Curious to know if anyone here has tried this out:

    http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/20474

    If so, did it work well for you, pretty much problem-free? As many screenshots as I take and considering the number of presentations I do for clients where I need to do a fast "clean sweep" of my desktop, this looks useful. Just a tad wary, though, as occasionally some widgets, etc. seem to "hang".

    In advance, thanks for any pertinent feedback on this :D

    I've played around with a few times over the last six months or so and used it for a presentation or two. No problems here...worked beautifully.

    I've been using it for quite a while. Simple little app, but works well, so I can happily throw things in my Desktop folder, but always have a clean desktop. My only hangup was not being able to click on the Desktop to switch to Finder, but I seemed to have trained that out of myself since using this.

    If you command/drag the icon from Finder/Apps to your menu bar, you'll accomplish nearly the same action. I did that 4 days ago after discovering this sweet app, left the app open and it hasn't interfered with ops at all. You can dock it, too, but I appreciate the ever-present mini-icon in the menu bar to remind me just how easy it is to click on-click off my desktop. The preferences are simple too, no head-scratching or tech dictionary needed. :D
