Privacy Hide is a freeware that helps to hide applications from desktop screen by just pressing a hotkey. You can add multiple applications for hiding and can set a custom hotkey to hide them whenever required. It could be helpful in case, when you immediately need to close all the private work, and don’t want anyone to see it.
For office workers, where using social networking sites is prohibited in some offices, this could be a useful trick. All you need to do is add application on its interface and set hotkey. Privacy Hide runs silently in system tray and you can even hide its icon from system tray which makes it more interesting to use.
Screenshot above shows its interface where you can add all the executable files (like *.exe) that you want to hide. Any application, like image editing software, MS Word, your web browser, etc. can be hidden as well as revealed back using the same hotkey.
