Hide Desktop Icons While Streaming 2023.1216.0

You can now configure the plugin to hide desktop icons only when a display capture source is visible.
A powerful addition that allows you to use your desktop icons like usual and only have them hide when a display capture source is visible (to protect your privacy!)

This can be combined with existing settings, eg. hide desktop icons when streaming and a display capture source is visible.


While I have thoroughly tested this, the logic for detection of a display capture source might not be 100% perfect. So if you really need your desktop icons to be hidden, I suggest disabling the new option and keeping to the streaming and recording ones.
You can now configure desktop icons to automatically hide during recording as well!

In OBS, click on ToolsAutoHide Desktop Icons to open the settings menu:
