Hi, I am using xfdesktop version 4.11.6, running on Xfce 4.10 with Ubuntu. Is it possible to have one of the workspaces show just the wallpaper without all the icons that I seem to build up over time ? There was an App called FENCES that would do this, I think in Windows but I don't know how to achieve this in Xfce.
Cheers . . . .Brian
Hi ToZ, thanks for the response. Can you tell me where I find the switch that controls icon display on the desktop ? Maybe I can make a script using Autokeys or something

xfdesktop won't do this out of the box. You have 2 options:
1. The screenlets package has a "folderview" screenlet that apparently works kind of like Fences on windows. I've never used Fences so I'm not sure of the functionality, but the folderview screenlet lets you group icons into a "window" on the screen. I don't believe it lets you hide the display of icons on the desktop though (however, they can be turned off).
2. Programatically write a routine that will watch for workspace changes on the desktop and when it changes to the workspace you want clean, flips the switch that displays icons on the screen.
