That bugs my mind... No desktop icons! Please....
Deepin Icons + GNOME Shell? Good choice!
Thanks! I'm also using the Arc GTK theme
Thank you!! I'm also using the arc-gtk-theme package...
Nice, what hardware you using?
Arch Linux <3
This is the ideal desktop home screen. You may not like it, but this is what peak performance looks like.
Do you have another social networks so we could talk ?
man, I love this \m/
and once in a while I create a folder titled exodus_desktop_YYMMDD and move all the clutter in it :D
My cool desktop
Love the wallpaper. Where can I find it?
Is it Fedora? Really beautiful!
It's Ubuntu 16.04 Gnome + ARC OSX + Flat remix icons + Plank
Use the command:
defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop -bool false;killall Finder
To hide all those icons.
This is weirdly pleasurable to look at.
I can't even...
How do you find them back?
Depending on a file I might just do a search within Finder to look for it. Eventually, all memes/funnies go into a folder and things look nicer for a week or two.
Here's something I made for a clutter like this. github.com/minigunnr/cleanup/
Just put the .py file on your desktop and run it from terminal --> python cleanup.py
Thank me later.
dzheezuz how do you even function!?
, is your desktop still in it's peak form? If so, you've gotta share.
The hero we all deserve
I appreciate your courage 😂
Love it !
Nope. Just. Nooooooooope.
Wow, Here is a tool I built and open sourced to help organise you desktop github.com/blavejr/OrganiseDesktop, Please feel free to help with it :)
Please sort or tidy up
Mine is typical for a Mac user I guess? :D
I just don't like having files and folders on my desktop.
Awesome! Where can we find this wallpaper?
Thanks! Soo cool!
I had the same wallpaper some months ago.
i think i'm gonna try this "clean" look, now that i see several ppl sharing...
Can you please inbox that image?
Well, I posted the source as another comment already. :)
Directlink to the desktop wallpaper: i.imgur.com/4HPEcJ8.jpg
I try to keep mine pretty empty, just a bit of clutter here. Also I had to join the "Starman" fad.
Ahead of your time :D
that's good motivational wallpaper
Can you share that wallpaper?
Sure, here it is: i.imgur.com/wj27idb.jpg
I'm afraid to using it, my boss has different interpretation.
I heard he likes kind of person who's work smarter than harder hehe,,
I love me some Ubuntu.
I miss Unity DE.
I still use Unity
The difference wasn't that big to me
I love it too!!
I love Kingdom Hearts
Another typical Mac user here. To Space!
I can't find the original source on DeviantArt anymore ☹️ but here it is imgur.com/a/q9Ocl
Here is my desktop! I have a vertical monitor for my code and the other is just regular :). I use Ubuntu desktop. I am thinking about changing to a different distro if anyone has different suggestions.
Give Manjaro KDE a try. You won’t regret it.
Wow! Where can I get this wallpaper? :D
It's made by DigitalOcean's illustrators. Extremely talented people. Here is an imgur link with every single one they have done (including the java one you see here).
Here you are: wallup.net/digitalocean-java-coffee/
Thanks, guys! :)
Love me some Gnome3 =)
You can get it at the artist's deviantart link i provided
oh! thanks!!! :D
Pretty standard Ubuntu 16.04 :)
That wallpaper is prettaaay!! Where can I get it :D
Here you go. Enjoy! :)
I use a tiling window manager (i3gaps) so I don't have a home screen, it's just a blank reddish space until I start something.
I want to move to Japan, and the wallpaper reminds me of this
wallpaper url please?
Gnome3 + Tint2, no idea how to put icons on my desktop ..
Wallpaper downloaded from alpha.wallhaven.cc/
Hit the super key, type Tweaks, there'll be a Tab called Desktop, you can activate desktop icons there (just in case that wasn't a joke :) )
that looks like mine
Love the minimal look.
How did you do it? :D Its cool
It is a combination of small tweaks:
You'll need Rainmeter (for the time display), translucentTB (see-through taskbar) and here some links for the wallpaper and the icons that I made.
Thank you! :)
I love it. this one is mine
How did u do that screen theme? :D
Your icons are pretty cool. I downloaded them from the link that you gave. Can you provide the link where you got them from?
I can't seem to find the link but for most of them I had to download the png icon and then I just made it white and used those for the icons.
Can you share your wallpaper please?
Of course, here is the link.
Rainmeter Skin link for Date/Time please!
No desktop enviroment for me, I'm comfortable with only a window manager and plenty of CLI tools!
Taipei 101 😻
Arch linux is sexy!
Love it!!!!!! Can you please share the wallpaper?
Yes, here it is it's .bg.jpg
Because smoking rockets are cool.
I like this pic, can you share ^
Hi Truýnh, got it at bluthemes.com/assets/img/blog/12/r...
My work laptop is all screenshots of bugs, one small folder of stuff, and a case-sensitive volume. My desktop at home is a lot messier than this (and my actual desk is a nightmare).
Old screenshot, Archlinux + i3wm
i am using i3wm too :D
Here is mine: (Falcon Heavy 😍)
You may be wondering how my Desktop is so clean... Well, I use this command (for Mac only):
It means that all the stuff on your Desktop will no longer show up! (but still be accessible from Finder)
Windows usually have left click menu for them.
I'm boring. I find the desktop picture distracts me. So here you go. Solid grey. Old school.
I'm a little late to the party but here's my homescreen:
the party is still ON!
hey that's mine!!!
Can you please share this wallpaper. It's amazing :)
The artist's dribble: Mikael Gustafsson
And the background: Also from dribble
BTW found it by googling the image that Amit shared :D
That's all. Simplicity is the essence of happiness.
I need this iconset :O please help me!
Low ram usage, super stable, full of developer tools. xubuntu is the one for me :)
Slapped in a random dark wallpaper to make my launcher bar not be the default purple. I rarely put anything on the desktop dir.
the knight seems cool. where did you get the wallpaper?
"Crap" is the new Desktop.
Here is mine. I'm affraid I love her.
IE is still there?
And calc.exe too? I find google better than calc.exe.
You have Chrome and FF on both desktop and taskbar. Why?
Lol, I agree, it looks like a mess. Right now, netBeans is my IDE. I'm trying Visual Studio Code, but the majority of my work is developed under Windows and, I kinda like it. Besides that, we don't use the most top-end technogolies (we don't even use git), so it works for me as is.
Calc is just a fast solution bringer. It's a custom.
Regarding to CH and FF, I used to use FF as my personal web browser and CH as my development browser. I loved FF extensions in his time. Now things has changed, but FF still remembers lots of my pswds. I'm migrating everything to CH but it will take some time. By now, I still use boths, but Chrome is gaining terrain.
Here it is
which package do you use for this application bar on the top?
It’s called Plank. Here’s how to install it on Ubuntu (or any other Debian-based distro):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:docky-core/stable
sudo apt update
sudo apt install plank
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:docky-core/stable
sudo apt update
sudo apt install plank
Nice, it's more beautiful than the Plank I've seen before. I'll try it on again, thanks!
Cool! I forgot to mention that the icons I’m using are from the Numix Circle package, you should try it too, it looks pretty good with Plank 😬
I almost never see my laptop's desktop. I tend to either cmd+tab through my open programs, use Alfred to launch apps, or rely on Finder to open/view/move files. I honestly can't remember the last time I viewed the normal "desktop."
That said, I do use a second monitor both at home and at the office. I used to have Tweetdeck open at all times, but ended up finding it too distracting. Now I only use the second monitor when I have specific ad-hoc work that helps make my workflow more efficient (usually doing something in another browser window, Excel, etc).
I now like to have a clean / minimalist / dark background on the second monitor, since it's squarely in my line of sight all day. I use a dark wood background I found online. The only program I usually have open is a simple Timer app. If I'm ever lacking motivation to do something, I'll usually "challenge" myself to make as much progress as I can in — say — 15 minutes, which helps break me out of the rut.
I second that... So I never understood the fascination about desktops... 🤷🏻♂️
Beginner Dev here :D.
Background name: Firewatch Arc
Theme Arc by niivui
Home screen consists of some rainmeter skins - Lano-Visualizer and Nougat Clock. Program for transparent taskbar is TranslucentTB
wow, LOL is very cool~
Maybe the overview is just a bit more interesting :D
Mine's even more boring :D
I'm using a stock Mac wallpaper 🙈
I've never gone and actually putting up a cooler wallpaper, but I always appreciate those who do.
I just love Vegeta
Over 9000! 😂
Awesome picture by the way Super Saiyan God is the only way to Windows go fast jejeje 😂
You can easily imagine mine. It is a black screen with no icons.
I pretty much never see my desktop, so there's no need to waste any memory/compute resources to render pictures, or to put icons there which never get touched. I have very frequently used apps pinned to task bar (about 6 programs). Semi-frequently is pinned to the start menu. Less frequently than that, I just search. I didn't intentionally structure things this way, it just naturally settled into that.
When I was a PC tech, I would periodically reformat my computer and start over. So I learned not to get too invested in my computer setups.
Yes, Game of Thrones.
could you provide the link and share your wallpaper ?
here you go
my desktop was hidden deep under the open programs, and the last time i saw it that close was in november or something. but my windows pc's desktop is a lot more popular: i hoard all the files i work with on the right monitor so at least the right monitor is always free of open windows.
Needless to say, I don't like having anything at all on my desktop. I want to bask in the glory of whatever background I put :3 my linux distros same way.
KDE 5 + Latte Dock
Going for a hybrid GNOME Shell / Unity look.
Here it is
Hieronymus Bosch ftw! I have spent hours on this site exploring the details of that painting.
Ah ah Evan you made my day! Thank you!
Clean mostly but I like it.
Manjaro Linux + Gnome @ work
Would you share your wallpaper? :)
I use IFTTT and Dropbox to grab my most recent Instagram pic, and have command-line programs to set the desktop to an arbitrary JPG, which is is in my Dropbox folder. Well, JPG is required on Windows.
Kubuntu 17.10 with KDE Plasma
There has to be a few KDE users like me out there right? Solidarity!
This kid put smile on my face every time i open my desktop :p
is it ubuntu 16.04 with custom icons
ubuntu 16.04 with Arc Theme and Flat Remix icon
Super simple, the background can be downloaded from zeit.co/logos.
The apps on the dock are Chrome, Hyper, VSCode, GitHub Desktop, Steam, Postman and Sketch.
Is that Mel Clarke?
Just simple, green to calm, dock and menu bar autohide. I am always surprised why most of you and ppl around me losing workspace in the cost of these.
i am from venezuela. this is my work desktop.
I cant send printscreem :v
You can use Markdown to show it:

I know this is an old thread but I just found my favorite wallpaper
Other than that, the desktop is almost never used. At the moment all my screenshots are auto saved in there (I keep meaning to change location). All the junk (eventually including screenshots) are on the Downloads folder
But, that wallpaper ... I'm so proud to have come across it :)
this thread is old
this thread is old
But still i see comments
Ubuntu Gnome 17.10 + Adapta GTK theme + Flat remix icon pack + Paper cursors
Of course you can! I went the extra mile with this one :P
Hope you like it!
Mine is for (hopefully) welcoming LGBTQ folks
I use an awesome little Mac app called "WallCat" which sets a random desktop every day on any/all of your monitors. Really nice - even tho I hardly get to see it :P
Ubuntu Unity + Arc-flatfabulous theme + Paper icons
I don't like icons on my desktop either, but I place ebooks that I have to read on it. It forces me to read to get a cleaner desktop haha.
great, may you share the wallpaper?
I'm affraid I can't. I use unsplash wallpaper for mac, so this is a random image from there. You can check unsplash.com/ to download it or check all images available.
Yes you can, here's my Ubuntu 17.10
Hey, you can use a Markdown image like this:

Any guesses to what the wallpaper on my laptop is? This is my desktop.
Whose stand? DIO?
Jojo - the world?
Keeping it clean and minimal!
I'm late to the party, but I call it clean XP.
Here's mine :)
Some years ago I used always RocketDock , but now I dropped, not sure why... I think I don't need it, or isn't practical since my setup is laptop on table, and second monitor upper the laptop monitor...
RocetDock is nicer when the monitors are side by side.
My main computer is running under xUbuntu, so a dark/transparency version of xFce and no need of desktop icons. Each one of the 4 virtual desktops available on mouseWeel-scroll have different wallpapers.
Had experienced some times with Docky, a desktop dock with icons on the bottom of the screen, but really non need either. The fav' apps list in the main menu is enough, plus the search box.
Tastes, colors, etc are all personal and as long it works for you with your setup cool. That's just mine at that moment.
This is mine. Just the default wallpaper for now I'm afraid.
Another Mac Desktop workspace :)
Pretty Basic but love the Wallpaper!!!!!
That's my windows 10 desktop
Here is mine
This website is not a fan of 5K displays, so I had to resize it a bit. :)
This is mine. There isn't too much to see.
Such a Linux Lover Desktop .
I think i will change it after this post :D
Can you share your wallpaper please?
I love icebergs... hehe
here it is, on Google •ᴗ•
Thanks a lot bro... •Y•
Sadly I have a windows machine.
I dont really like microsoft products, but I need to work with it.
I prefer linux much more.
Ohm, I see
I'm actually more productive with Windows environment...
I believe that people sould use what are more productive for them, at least when possible...
Yep, thats right. :)
But actually you can not develop windows forms application well on a linux environment. At least not yet. :D
Yep, you always need the targeting S.O. to compile properly...
In Windows, I always have a "desktop" folder on my Desktop!
I prefer not to have Desktop Icons.
And this's mine.
Like a mess.
aside from code I <3 league
Here's mine thepracticaldev.s3.amazonaws.com/i...
That's mine ;]
Here´s my desktop, I really like the octocat
here is mine
I thought Antergos was popular.
I'm on it at the moment. Was using Arch previously.
My colleagues say it's not a developer desktop. I don't have any shortcut on it. (I organize everything in Start Menu Live Tiles and folders. In the bottom left corner is the folder for text editors, development tools and IDE's)
My Minimal Desktop! 👌🏻😉
Working on Satellite image recognition...
Simple, with no icons!
