I’m using the LINNMON desk with the OLOV legs. The desk faces out to people, where they can see the person’s legs, chair, and computer.
Do you have any hack that I could use to create a “front” to the desk to hide said person’s legs, chair, and computer?

I’ve yet to see an IKEA hack for a desk privacy panel but IKEA has a screen, the BEKANT screen which can serve the purpose.
It comes in 2 different sizes. The smaller one (at 21 5/8″ tall) can be mounted at two heights to suit different needs.
Furthermore, the screen also has the added benefit of sound absorption.

If you rather not have a screen that covers up so much of the workspace, you can try some thing like this:
I believe this is quite easily hacked with a wood panel and appropriate hardware.
Ready made desk privacy screens
If you rather not hack, you can get ready made desk privacy panels. I found a few off Amazon, which seems quite easy to use. You’ll just need to fasten them onto the desk top, whether to block off the computer or below the desk.
More panels for more privacy and sound dampening. Add the panels to the sides too to create a cubicle like workspace. You can also hang the desk screen upside down to serve as a “modesty panel” that blocks the view beneath the desk.
