Can I see your desktop home screen

As always, I'm interested in what other guys are doing with their tools.
This time I just wanted to see your desktop home screen.

Here is mine

Mine is typical for a Mac user I guess? :D

I just don't like having files and folders on my desktop.

Use the command:

defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop -bool false;killall Finder

To hide all those icons.

You're welcome.

Depending on a file I might just do a search within Finder to look for it. Eventually, all memes/funnies go into a folder and things look nicer for a week or two.

Just put the .py file on your desktop and run it from terminal --> python cleanup.py

Hit the super key, type Tweaks, there'll be a Tab called Desktop, you can activate desktop icons there (just in case that wasn't a joke :) )

It is a combination of small tweaks:

You'll need Rainmeter (for the time display), translucentTB (see-through taskbar) and here some links for the wallpaper and the icons that I made.

I can't seem to find the link but for most of them I had to download the png icon and then I just made it white and used those for the icons.

My work laptop is all screenshots of bugs, one small folder of stuff, and a case-sensitive volume. My desktop at home is a lot messier than this (and my actual desk is a nightmare).
