Windows 7: Show us your Desktop

20 Jan 2013   #501

Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit
 
 

This is my notebook (the desktop is similar). Nothing spectacular here.



Except for a couple of temporary links, I don't keep any program icons on my desktop, preferring to use the taskbar and the Start menu. I use the desktop for a calendar, post-it notes, and as a temporary parking place for files and folders in progress; keeping them in my face helps me to remember to deal with them. I have three folders by the Recycle Bin that I use as a landing place when downloading or saving a large number of files, such as photos from a camera card or when scanning a large number of documents. Putting the taskbar on the left and not autohiding it makes seeing what windows are open at a glance easier and gains me a bit more screen height; I've yet to miss the slight loss in screen width.

Woah! I'd use this software to give your desktop a makeover. I just could not live with so many things all over the place!

Hiding it would defeat the purpose. It all needs to always be in my face; otherwise I would never deal with anything (I have ADHD).

Same thing. If I auto-hide anything, I'll never deal with it. I have to have it always in my face.

fair enough! it certainly catches your attention, so i guess it works for you.
i would recommend 7 sticky notes, you can have different colors to denote importance and you can even have alarm pop ups on them as reminders

7 Sticky Notes - Features - Fun, interactive, powerful and cool Sticky Notes for your Desktop!
