Use Iconoid to hide your desktop icons when your cursor is not on the desktop so that you can see your desktop wallpaper. Make your desktop icon backgrounds transparent or change the color of the text or background. Save and restore icon positions.
Version: 3.8.6Iconoid is a desktop icon management tool.
Operating System: Windows
With it you can change icon text and background colors, make text backgrounds transparent, hide icons when you don't need them, see them when you do (based on mouse pointer location).
Iconoid can automatically determine the optimal text background color based on your current wallpaper or you can select your own color from a color box or directly from your current wallpaper.
Save and restore icon positions.
The difference between Iconoid and other Save / Restore programs is that Iconoid goes to great lengths to intelligently move new icons out of the way of icons that are being restored so that you don't have overlapping icons.
Iconoid is very customizable but is not resource intensive. Use it with a system tray icon or hide the program completely.
Iconoid includes other features for people who like to change their desktop wallpaper frequently or who just need an easy tool to handle some of Windows icon management shortcomings.
Iconoid runs on Win9X / NT / 2000 systems. Full Help is included and source is available.
