In case you still need some shortcut in your desktop instead of put into 8start Launcher (e.g. shortcut link to your frequent use document, or shortcut you haven't decide put into which group of 8start Launcher), but you don't want the shortcut block the view of your beautiful wallpaper, you may create a desktop folder at your desktop and put all the shortcuts into it. It make your desktop clean, and you still easy access to the shortcuts.
In my desktop, I put only recycle bin and desktop folder. I use 8start Launcher to access my drive content instead of using "my computer" icon
