Cheap and RAM-frugal desktop hiding
Authored by: craigw on Apr 12, '07 10:25:08AM
I just use a simple shell script:
defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop FALSE ; killall Finder

If you create 2 files called "HideDesktop.sh" and "ShowDesktop.sh" in your Scripts folder and make them executable, you can run them from the Script Menu, or give them keyboard shortcuts by your favorite method.

HideDesktop.sh:
#!/bin/sh
defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop FALSE ; killall Finder

ShowDesktop.sh:
#!/bin/sh
defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop TRUE ; killall Finder
