This is a submission for AutoHideDesktopIcons, available here.

It is a program which auto-hides (and un-hides) the icons on a user's desktop, allowing for a cleaner interface. It is configurable, allowing for several different settings.

Useful, but I've just discovered that it's easier to use PowerPro for this purpose.

Hotkey: middle desk
Command: Desktop HideShowIcons

This way middle-clicking on the Desktop toggles desktop icons.
