New Tools to Help Clean Up Your Desktop

Easter is here and while you’re in the process of renewing yourself, it would also be a great idea to clean up your PC and most especially your desktop. You may have been used to the usual tools but may find them not contributing much to efficiency of your PC. If this is the case, it’s time to change some of those old tools and remove some of those clutter on your desktop.

Normally, files that have piled up in your computer are to be blamed for using up a big part of your hard disk space. When they’re not removed from time to time, they can eventually cause your PC to slow down.

On your desktop, as you download programs and apps, it can get cluttered through time but you can do something about it. Wouldn’t it be nice to start your work when you see your desktop so clean and attractive?

Here are simple ways you can do to organize your desktop and new tools you can use. When you are able to successfully use them, you can be sure to be more inspired to work and become more efficient moving into the future.

Create Shortcuts

As writers and publishers, you can be guilty of having accumulated a large volume of files and downloaded programs on your PC. These files you normally organize into folders but to create a clean desktop, you can create shortcuts to your folders as well as upload an attractive wallpaper. Just remember to limit the number of your folders.

Shortcuts and folders can show up on your desktop but you can move them to another location if you want to. For example, you can put them on your menu or the launch bar.
