    Permanently hide desktop icons?

    As stated in the title, is there a way to automatically hide the desktop icons whenever I log on without right clicking "hide desktop icons" every time? I'm using an minimalistic theme and it annoys me to have to hide the icons every time I log on.

    Thanks.

    Maybe this helps ( Create a Shortcut or Hotkey to Turn the Desktop Icons On or Off :: the How-To Geek ). It's not exactly what you are looking for, but close.
