Hide/Unhide Desktop Icons in one click

I often post videos (screencasts) in my posts, while creating them I try to hide the icons on desktop, because I generally use my desktop as a dumping ground. My desktop is often found with loads of downloaded files, though I keep moving them to specific folders and even to recycle bin but still it often looks messy.

So while making videos, I used to create a new folder, cut-paste all the files on desktop to it, and once I am done with video I used to bring those files back to desktop. However now I don’t need to do this, because I got this small tool to help me out, named as HideDesktopIcons, which can help me to hide or unhide the desktop icons in just one click. Thanks to How-To Geek for this awesome tool.
