My desktop hasn't any icons on it. I've made some slide shows with wallies that I like, so when ever wall is changed, I'm staring in it for 5-6 seconds, and continue what I was doing.
Our admin has 6 screens wow! That's a looot of screens.
I have a dual monitor setup so I use the gadgets more than I look at my desktop, but I like to know there's a nice image there. Plus as others mentioned I like a nice desktop on my free monitor. It's just something to customize for the overall ambiance of my computer/room.

No offense, but I think anything more than 2 monitors is overkill. Even with my dual-23" monitor setup, I find myself still using only one monitor. Hard to get into the habit of using the other monitor.

Makes editing a bit easier since the interface can be spread out and not cluttered on 1 screen.
that looks awsome! is that you job ? editing video ?
Not anymore. I still shoot video, but mainly I build/repair/upgrade computers, photograph golf tournaments, and do onsite printing with another photographer, he shoots the portraits and I'll print out the packages.
I also fix/upgrade sports cars as well.
To say any amount of screens if overkill based on your person situation is just rubbish.
While one might argue that 6 screens is a bit overkill....in your case the functionality and practicality of having this many screens is worth the price of admission. Sure, you could use fewer monitors...but you don't want to. Nothing wrong with that.

Offline updates spend enormous time "searching for updates on this..." I do a lot of offline updating from my own store. Many of the updates prepare for installation by "searching for updates to this computer". I suppose this is to examine the need for and suitability of the update. The first update searches pretty quickly, but then it's very slow - something like 5...

Desktop Freezes frequently time to time, need help please! Just a few minutes ago I had music playing, youtube on watching pranks, and had a game loaded and running on my chrome browser, my whole computer froze up and started making noises(I guess the noise was from the video I was watching, it was like spitting out sounds from the video while being...
How much time do you spend daily on Seven Forums volunteering help? My daily messages on Seven Forums have averaged to 5.35 in the last about six months since I am here. They are not necessarily all volunteering help but I suppose most of them are. For this level of activity I spend about 2 hours everyday surfing Seven Forums.
I have checked on other volunteers...
How much time do you spend on Seven Forums Dear Friends,
