Small and unobtrusive macOS utility designed to help you focus on your current task by covering your desktop and going into single window mode in an instant
Keeping your desktop clean is at times a challenging task if you have to work with a lot of documents on a daily basis and you also need quick access to each of them.
Furthermore, if you are the type of user who uses multiple applications at the same time and has to switch between lots of windows regularly, you need a tool designed to help you stay focused and rapidly conceal your desktop when and if you require it to look pristine.
Hide your desktop behind an image of your choice
DeskCover Pro is a low-key macOS application created with this exact purpose in mind: to allow its users to swiftly add a cover over their busy desktop, and to go into single window mode when they have to avoid distractions and to focus on the task at hand.
Once started, DeskCover Pro adds a status bar item which helps you toggle the desktop cover and to isolate the frontmost window, as well as view the global keyboard shortcuts associated to each of these two features.
It is important to mention that while using the DeskCover Pro app to cover your desktop, you can choose to have it hidden behind a solid color, behind your Mac's system wallpaper, or behind an image of your choice.
Focus on the current task by hiding distractions
DeskCover Pro also comes with a window focus feature which works by automatically darkening all other windows behind the foreground one when you either toggle on the “Isolate Frontmost Window” option from the menu bar or when using the ⌃ + ⌥ + I global keyboard shortcut.
Additionally, the DeskCover Pro app also features an “Isolate multiple Windows” mode which enables you to keep between two and five windows isolated for keeping your work area as free of distractions as possible.
Furthermore, DeskCover Pro works flawlessly when having to cover up thedesktop, and it allows you to set it to start on login, to cover thedesktop on its own once it launches and to customize its global keyboardshortcuts if they conflict with the ones you already configured on yourMac.
Easy to use and low-key app for covering your Mac's desktop and avoiding distractions
In a nutshell, having DeskCover Pro installed on your Mac can bring a serious boost to your productivity if you need a simple tool to camouflage your crowded desktop before taking screenshots. The app can also be successfully used if you get easily distracted and have a hard time focusing on the task at hand.
