Well yesterday i just found a easy method of hiding the desktop icons in one click
Well its pretty basic and what is the use of this ? while recording your video if your desktop is clean it looks good as i readed in a ebook

Sorry for my english

Create a Shortcut to Toggle the Desktop Icons


The solution comes through a small utility written by one of the Desktop Sidebar programmers (an alternate sidebar with loads of modules). Just so we’re clear, this utility does the same thing as a right-click on the desktop and toggling the “Show Desktop Icons” item.

Setting Up the Shortcut

The first thing you’ll need to do is download the HideDesktopIcons application and save it somewhere other than the desktop, preferably somewhere where it won’t be deleted—you could put it under your Program Files folder if you wanted to.

If you’re using Windows 7, all you need to do is right-click on the file and choose Pin to Taskbar or Pin to Start Menu, depending on where you want it. We’ll put it on the Start Menu so we can assign a hotkey to it.

To assign a hotkey, right-click on the shortcut in the Start Menu and choose Properties to assign a hotkey (I use Ctrl+Alt+D since it’s easy to remember).

Now you can access the desktop icons through a shortcut icon or shortcut key.

This might actually come in handy!
Due to my desktop being filled up with icons, I have been recording videos on my virtual machines.

To be honest the best way to actually "hide" your icons is just recording in another 16:9 HD dimension. Go for 1280x720 and you will have a nice small window and the user is even able to read text displayed inside your video. I dislike videos where the whole desktop is shown. :D

Thanks for this tutorial though, I bet a lot of people can use it! :)

Cheers,
