Keyboard Shortcuts

Set up a custom keyboard shortcut to toggle your menu bar and desktop icons. (Seriously, I use this with Command-Shift-< like forty times a day. Pro is worth it just for this.)

With Vanilla Pro, you get a “Completely Removed” icons section. Icons in this section will only be visible if you open Vanilla’s preferences window.
