Are you tired of looking at a cluttered and disorganized desktop? A messy desktop can be distracting and make it difficult to find the files and applications you need. By giving your Windows desktop a clean and professional look, you can create a more efficient and productive workspace. Here are some tips to get started:


1. Hide Desktop Icons in Windows 10:

To hide desktop icons in Windows 10,

  1. Right-click on your desktop.
  2. Hover your cursor over “View” in the context menu.
  3. Uncheck the “Show desktop icons” option.


  1. Open the Settings app (Windows key + I).
  2. Click on “Personalization.”
  3. Click on “Themes” in the left sidebar.
  4. Click on “Desktop icon settings” under “Related settings.”
  5. Uncheck the boxes next to the icons you want to hide.

Note that there are also third-party software options available for more customization. It’s important to remember that hiding icons doesn’t delete them from your computer.

2. How to center the Taskbar icons in Windows 10:

Method 1: Using a third-party software

There are several third-party software options available that allow you to center the Taskbar icons in Windows 10, such as TaskBarX.

Method 2: Manually adjust the Taskbar settings

While this method doesn’t center the icons exactly, it can help make them appear more centered.

  1. Right-click on an empty area of the Taskbar.
  2. Uncheck “Lock the taskbar” if it’s checked.
  3. Hover your cursor over the edge of the Taskbar until it turns into a double-sided arrow.
  4. Click and drag the Taskbar to the center of the screen.
