Five Fun Ways to Organize Your Computer Desktop

Jul 1, 2014
I find it hard to work when my physical workspace is cluttered and that includes my digital workspace.

My computer desktop had become a mess lately as I had accumulated so many files, folders, and images that didn't really need to be there. I decided that I needed to get organized and the first step was to trash everything I no longer needed and then I moved the rest of the items to their appropriate folders.

I didn't get to take a "before" picture of my desktop, but this is what it looked like after I was done cleaning up:

It looked better but was a little boring so I did a search for desktop wallpapers and found this one which I downloaded from Imgur. 


I downloaded the image to my desktop and then I re-arranged all the icons and folders on my desktop. 

This is what it looks like now:

Fun right?? I put all my folders on the little shelves and the bulletin board is where I put files that I'm currently working on, as well as certain applications like Sticky Note.  On the tiny desk, I dragged my USB icon as I use it a lot. 

It may seem silly, but I have to admit that I got a lot of satisfaction out of organzing my computer desktop in this way -- it was almost like fixing up a digital dollhouse office! :D

When I was looking for wallpapers, I found four more that are free to download and will help you to keep your computer desktop organized:
