Positive News Stories to start your day!
Today Is National Clean Your Virtual Desktop Day!
A computer desktop should include icons, programs, and files that are used often, or those that will be looked at in the short term and then moved. Over time, desktops tend to get cluttered with much more than is necessary. This can cause productivity and efficiency to suffer, as files or programs take longer to locate or the wrong files get worked on. Some unused programs on desktops may even pose a threat to a computer’s security. On National Clean Your Virtual Desktop Day, a holiday created by the Personal Computer Museum, computer desktops are cleaned and decluttered so that computers and those using them can function to their fullest.
How to Observe National Clean Your Virtual Desktop Day
Use the day to review everything on your desktop. Does each item need to be there, or can it be moved to another location or be deleted? For the items you decide to keep, consider putting them into clearly labeled folders or subfolders. You could also save room by putting the icons to your most used programs on the taskbar. Another way to spend the day is to help someone who doesn’t know how to clean up their virtual desktop on their own. While National Clean Your Virtual Desktop Day comes once a year, cleaning your desktop periodically throughout the year is also important. So make sure not to wait another whole year before you think about your desktop!
