Howto Hide or Show Individual Xfce Desktop Icons

You can choose to hide or show ALL icons with the Xfce desktop settings, but what about if you want to select individual icons?

Like this:

gksudo mousepad ~/.config/xfce4/desktop/xfdesktoprc

copy and paste->

[file-icons]
show-filesystem=false
show-home=false
show-trash=false
show-removable=true

Just put true or false for the icons you want shown or hidden.

Save and Restart Xfce Desktop with Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to activate.
