using desktop as shelf
Authored by: tomem on Jun 10, '03 08:36:17PM

About the only potential problem with your approach is if the desktop is cluttered and inaccessible. But with OS X even that isn't reallly a problem because you can open up a window of the desktop, and float it to the top of your clutter. Now your shelf can be as big as you want and the background can be decorated as well! Or you could use any other Finder window as a shelf.

The only thing that bothers me about this scheme is that I still have all that clutter in the way of my wallpaper on the old desktop that isn't a window. Why not a Finder option to turn that off along with drives and mounted servers?

So turn off the desktop. I posted a hint a while back with one method, the comments to that hint contained a few variations.
