What (and where) is the Desktop on my computer?

Many of Worldstart’s tips will refer to the Windows Desktop at one point or another. If you don’t know what it is, that’s okay, because we’re here to help!

So here we go!

The Desktop, basically, is where all your icons live (stuff like the Recycle Bin sit on the Desktop).

It’s the “background” area you see when your computer first boots up before you run any programs.

While we’re talking about the desktop… do you have icons scattered all over and would like to organize them?

Yes? Then just Right-click the Desktop and select “Arrange Icons“. You’ll be presented with a sub-menu that’s chock full of icon arrangement options. I personally use the ” By Type ” option, since I have all sorts of different icon species residing on my desktop.
