Don’t you hate it when newly installed/updated applications ruin your pristine desktop with their filthy shortcuts without your permission?
Are you tired of manually deleting said shortcuts off your desktop over and over again?
Introducing “Desktop Maid”, the clever little application that will keep your desktop clean once and for all!

  • It will automatically monitor your desktop and move any newly detected shortcuts into its “JunkBin” folder, where they will remain out of sight until you choose otherwise.
  • Did I mention that “Desktop Maid” is clever? That’s right, it will only get rid of shortcut files and will not touch anything else.
  • You can always restore and exclude any shortcuts that it “deleted” so you can keep your desktop exactly the way you like it!



Drag and drop any executable or shortcut on the main window and it will be added as a button which you can use to launch it later.

Right-click the button if you want to remove it. You can move on the window horizontally by dragging it from the small orange stripe on the right.

Also, you can right-click on it (orange stripe) to show the settings window.
