SHIcon keeps your desktop clean without deleting all the shortcuts and folders you have there by simply hiding the icons.
You only have to download and run it. You don't even have to copy it to the desktop, because it will do it automatically.
Each time you double-click it, it will hide or display, depending on current state, all desktop shortcuts, files and folders on the desktop. However, SHIcon won't hide system icons like the computer or recycle bin.
This "magic wand" will always be visible on your desktop, and will change its name each time it runs.
If the desktop icons are visible, its name will be hide icons, and when they're hidden, it will be show icons.
