    Right click desktop.

    Arrange Icons By -> Auto Arrange.

    turn your monitor upside-down.

    i dont just uncheck the "show desktop icons" thing - i actually remove them all.

    most are easy, except for the recycle bin, and that only takes tweakui to remove. generally makes bootup and shutdown go quite a bit faster.
