    Hi all.

    I wish to make my desktop completely black at will.

    And then go back and reverse the black screen back to a normal desktop, or whatever I was working on before.

    Not talking about a black desktop background. That's something else.

    Does anybody know if there is a way to do this?

    Thanks,

    Larry

    Easiest way: power off the monitor. Power it on when you are ready to work.

    thanks very much plodr and lkjk, but that website bombarded me with ads, but if i had a desktop, what i would do is just power of the monitor

    i will just click on the bottom right corner of windows 7 screen to downsize all my open applications

    and again to upsize them

    i will get a black desktop background, and make all my desktop icons not visible, or group them all together in one

    To make the desktop icons invisible, right click a blank part of the desktop and select View.
    Uncheck/untick Show icons. Now all that shows is the desktop background.

    If you simply minimize all the applications, they'd still show on the taskbar.
