Declutter your Windows Desktop with Another Desktop App

By DominicD
If you know how to use the “Show Desktop” icon on Windows, then you probably are guilty of filling your Windows Desktop with numerous programs, documents, and shortcuts. Microsoft intended for us to keep our files in the respective My Documents, Pictures, Music, Videos folders.. However, intermediate to advanced users tend to find the Windows Desktop to be a more accessible location for saving files. What happens in a matter of days is a chaos of desktop icons, program shortcuts, files, documents, and downloads.

Welcome to Desktop icon hell!

Did you make a mistake extracting that zip file of holiday pictures?

Are you a hoarder of program icons and shortcuts?

Sure, there are My Documents, My Pictures, My Music and Etc.. But surely, the Desktop folder is the best location for saving them all!!

Declutter your desktop with Windows SysInternals “Desktops v1.02”
If you are an Ubuntu/Linux/Mac user, the idea of multiple desktop windows might be familiar to you. Multi-tasking in Windows is convenient, but keeping track of the opened programs and documents is not a very easy practice.

SysInternals Desktops v1.02 is a very small program that is very easy to install. You are prompted for your preference of shortcut keys for switching between the four desktops. You can choose to set shortcut keys for Alt / Ctrl / Shift / Windows keys.

If you have grown familiar with multiple desktop views, you can choose to automatically run the program during windows startup.

A well organized desktop lets you focus as you work, and allows you to better track different tasks and programs.
