Hi all,
What can I do so that when I click on the desktop, the hidden finder window won't show. I want to be able to click on icons on the desktop and I don't want that hidden finder window to pop-up.

Thanx for help
QUOTE Thanks

Minimise the Finder window to the Dock instead of hiding it.
Command m rather than command h
