Well, I was trying to edit my post above.
I haven't shown a desktop in awhile. As you can see I'm using a few desktop items like ObjectDock Plus, ObjectBar, SVD and WindowsFX, along with Impulse. What you can't see are BootSkin and Logon and I forgot to show RightClick. Oh, and WindowBlinds and Wallpaper. Oh look, tabs in a browser.
If left like this, a very messy desktop, but I use the 'Hide Off Screen' option for all of this stuff when the are not in use. I then have a desktop that shows only the tabs for the dock at top and the recycle bin.
Now if I can just figure out how to add a DesktopX Theme!
