How to Delete My Living Desktop From My Mac


My Living Desktop is a program for Mac which is effectively both a screen saver and desktop wallpaper. The desktop wallpaper is a fully-animated video clip, and when the program enters screen saver mode, it causes the desktop icons and windows to automatically fade away to devote more screen real estate to the animated video. After trying My Living Desktop, you may decide that you do not enjoy the video clips, or that the program is too draining on your Mac's battery. Delete My Living Desktop if you decide that you would like to return to using a conventional desktop wallpaper.
