Remove everything from the desktop
Authored by: darkhalf on Jan 07, '05 03:00:16PM

The finder preferences has options to show what's on the desktop apart from files in the Desktop folder; you can have mounted network filesystems and media without dedicating an icon.

With all of these options disabled, "cleaning" this is as simple as hitting command-a followed by command-delete after focusing onto the desktop.

I personally never run with any icons on the desktop (and sometimes don't even run the Finder to make it unclickable).
