Well, mine is usually like that, but sometimes I try to organize everything into the absurdly named folders

It goes back to being filled with icons after a few days though

Haha, same here. I just have one "storage folder" sitting on the DT to where I clean up all the icons when it starts to get busy.

Glad you mentioned Wallpaper master, I was using a different switcher (Adolix), but I like Wallpaper master better. Only thing I'd like to see added is the ability to save "playlists".

That reminds me, I've always wanted to take a screenshot of my sons desktop with the shortcuts scattered all over, remove all the shortcuts and use the screenshot as the desktop. I'd love to see him clicking all over and nothing happening.

I humbly admit defeat Can't get any cleaner than yours unless you took the wallpaper off, too

Hmmm weird my photo disappeared. Fixed for now hopefully, if not ill change hosts.

I use to have more shortcuts but I got rid of a lot of them in the cleanup job in preparation to move over, same for patches, archives, text documents, etc.
I'm also going to have to update the desktop copy I made as i had planned to fully transition back almost 2 months ago, but with the university semester from hell (2 month bus strike, and other problems put me seriously behind in class) and me not being a young 20 something (try 30 something) I didn't have time to beyond doing the first backup.

Anyhow my normal desktop is like i said usually to the last row, and that's at 1600x1050 which gives me a ton of desktop space to fill. The odd thing though is i usually can find stuff pretty easily on it. Unless windows ticks me off and surprise rearranges everything. Maybe some day ill transition to something a bit easier to manage, but I'm not in any rush.

As for the prank, ya that would work though you would have to edit it slightly, and make sure its a maximum resolution shot (bmp) or they will notice. Just dump everything into a folder and tuck it away someplace.
