we did something similar to a boss I had (we all liked him, it was just a fun, don't go on vacation prank). I took a screenshot of his desktop, turned it upside down, made it his wallpaper and put all his real folders and app aliases in a folder pushed just off screen. we then put everything we could in his cubicle upside down. he thought it was funny.

Ive done this long, long, LONG ago to one of my (ex) friends. And Angilion, I did a variation of your idea. You can simply right-click the background, go to View, and select to hide all desktop icons. No fiddling with the icons or an extra folder

to drips, it changes the layout to another countrys normal setting, but this is on most windows os and actually really useful when you type in different languages

But why would you do this sort of thing anyway? It's a petty revenge at best, not worth stooping to.

Simpler one, assuming they use desktop icons as shortcuts:

Take a screenshot and save it.

Move the shortcuts into a folder (so they can be easily restored to the desktop afterwards).

Set the background image to be the screenshot you took earlier.

Now the screen looks identical to their usual desktop (including the cursor), but clicking on the icons does nothing at all because they're just part of the background and not shortcuts.
