I’m the first to admit it: My computer desktop is messier than my teenage daughter’s room. Of course, I know exactly where everything is when I need to find it, but when recording a screencast, I generally have to make sure I have windows, strategically placed, to hide the clutter.
So no one was happier to hear about the “hide desktop” feature in ScreenFlow 2.0 than I was! No more cleaning up the clutter before a screencast! Now I can just hide it all with a click of a button. Here’s how:
First, make sure you have “Show ScreenFlow options in menu bar” clicked in your preferences.
Next, click on the ScreenFlow camera icon in the upper right side of you menu bar and select “Hide desktop”.
And the result is a blissfully clean desktop!
To show your desktop again, simply go back up to the ScreenFlow camera icon in the upper right side of you menu bar and select “Show desktop”.
