    I want my desktop to simply be the icons. Reason being, i am using Kobhens theme, and would like to have the name be in the icon, and not repeated below. Any way of making the name transparent or anything else?

    rightclick on the folder>get info. On name and Extension, just delete the name and then click on the arrow next to "name and extension". it will then have no name under the folder, but when you click on it, it will have a rectangular buble (lol) under it only when you click on the folder.

    I figured that may be my only option. I was hoping for something to just hide it so the icons would be closer.

    You could make the file name font size smaller, the icon size bigger and tighten the grid. Use the "Show View Options" command under the View menu in Finder.
