How to Gizmo Client Remove Desktop

I really love Gizmo and it’s Material Design client, but i wanted to hide everything related to desktop like on legacy theme expect when i enter to maintance mode (so win10 taskbar + system notifications) but without start button, and desktop icons showing before client load :)

To archive this i needed to do several things and here is how to do it :)

0. Fix Files


Here are all files you will need in this manual: https://c.m0k1.pw/s/MbscnGSHt76eNep

Download it & extract folder it to C:/

1. Removing of Desktop Icons before client load

For this purpose i created 2 bat files that are Hiding/Showing Desktop Icons.
I actually added them to right click on desktop so i can show icons if i need them in Gizmo’s Maintance Mode.

1. Removing of ShowDesktop in task bar

This fix is removing ShowDesktop in right corner of taskbar.
So this is needed to do everytime when user login as fix is hooking to explorer.exe
To archive this you will need to craete Task Inside Gizmo Manager Configuration.

After clicking Ok to add it, set it to be runed on Login as show on picture:
