Create a Shortcut or Hotkey to Turn the Desktop Icons On or Off

After the article last week about creating a shortcut to quickly access the desktop folder, one of our readers asked for a shortcut or hotkey to simply hide or show the desktop icons. This seemed like a great idea, so I’ve come up with the best way to do exactly that.
The solution comes through a small utility written by one of the Desktop Sidebar programmers (an alternate sidebar with loads of modules). Just so we’re clear, this utility does the same thing as a right-click on the desktop and toggling the “Show Desktop Icons” item.
