Hey, I'm an OS X vet, and yet I don't know the answer to this question: can icons on the desktop be hidden from view? Pretty sure Windows has a way to do this. If anyone knows, tell all. Thanks.

alternatively if you want to hide it from plain view - e.g. more than just hiding the icon but the file itself just use
mv filename .filename
though I'm not certain this is what you're looking for

you can hide Hard Drives, Servers, and Cd's DVD's iPod's etc. in the built in software through Finder>Preferences

if you want to hide everything you could try a program
