CNET Editors' review
This program does a good job cleaning up cluttered desktops by temporarily stowing away unused icons, but one downfall may be that it is frustratingly difficult to remove. Desktop Closet has a functional, easy-to-use interface that lets users quickly remove icons that are not typically shown on Windows desktop.
Desktop Closet does what it promises, quickly placing all your icons in a "closet" and easily restoring them back on the desktop. It also can save and recall your icons' original position. What's more, the program restores Windows' default wallpaper, making your desktop look clean and organized. Desktop Closet can be run at startup and docks on the system tray; however, the ability to clean and restore desktop icons with hot keys would've been beneficial.
Desktop Closet's trial version doesn't include an uninstall feature and can be difficult to remove. With its efficient performance, however, you won't have to. Anyone who wants a quick desktop do-over will find Desktop Closet a handy addition to his/her system.
From Desktop Software:
Have you ever had to give an important PowerPoint presentation, Webex Demo, or Goto Meeting Demo and when you go to display/show your desktop you felt embarrassed, due to hundreds of icons on your desktop and the picture of your last vacation as the background wallpaper? Desktop Closet gives you the ability to quickly clean your desktop and change your background all in one mouse click. Manage your image with Desktop Closet.
