Desktopple quickly and easily hides all of your Desktop clutter. A quick trip to your menu bar or the touch of a hotkey is all it takes, and those icons simply vanish from view.

Even Better for Productivity

A messy Desktop only serves as a distraction when you're working. Desktopple can hide those distractions so you can Focus on your work. What's more, with features like Menu Dimming and Window Cleaning, Desktopple Pro makes getting things done even easier!

Preference Pane Application

All of the Desktopple preferences are conveniently located in the System Preferences. And if your menu bar is crowded, you can easily remove the Desktopple icon and control it with a hotkey or Automator Action.

Window Cleaning

It's great that your Mac lets you run multiple applications, but sometimes all those extra windows can be quite distracting. Desktopple can watch you work, and if you haven't used an application in a specified amount of time, it will hide those apps for you automatically.

Desktopple Pro Widget

The Desktopple Pro widget gives you even more control. A quick trip to the Dashboard lets you start Desktopple Pro, hide the Desktop, and more! Download the Desktopple Pro widget.

Backgound Choices

Make your workspace your own. Choose to hide your Desktop with your regular Desktop image, a different image, a smooth gradient, or a solid color. The choice is yours!

Cover Sets

With Cover Sets, you can easily define several "Covers" for your Desktop environment. One for screenshots, Say, and another for presentations. Then, you can easily switch from one set to another using the handy menu bar item.


Add applications to the Desktopple AutoHide list, and when you launch those applications, Desktopple will automatically hide your Desktop. What's more, when you Quit those applications, your Desktop automatically fades back into view.
