Clean Your Desk(top)

Have too many icons on your desktop? You probably only have a few that you really use on a regular basis, so why not keep the other ones handy, but hidden?

Well, it can be done by putting a little folder on your desktop and dragging any infrequently used shortcut icons to it. Here’s how:

1. Right-click the desktop and select, New, Folder .

2. Name the new folder ” Desk Drawer ” (no quotes) or something similar.

3. Now, drag any icons that aren’t being used on a regular basis to the folder. Some of the icons are stubborn and refuse to live anywhere but the desktop, so you’ll find you can’t move them (no amount of colorful language seems to improve this situation either). Most of them will make the transition with no complaints though.

That’s it. A much cleaner desktop! If you need one of those little shortcuts, open the Desk Drawer folder and there they are.
