Navigate Desktop Visual Pollution

The Microsoft Princess offers up a better way to navigate Windows desktop visual pollution.–PC Pitstop

Many people have a cluttered desktop view made up of shortcuts to open programs, and documents that are stored. While it may seem as visual pollution to some, the majority of Windows users find this part of their daily routine.

To save time in finding what you are looking for, I have a quick trick to help. You’ll only need to walk through these steps to enable it one time, and when your computer restarts it will always be available for you in the same place.

1. Make sure you are in the desktop view
2.Right-click in an open area along the taskbar and choose “Properties”
3. Click the “Toolbars” tab, and check “Desktop”
4. Once you click ok and close the Window, you’ll see “Desktop >>” along the taskbar. Click on the “>>” and you’ll see the “All Programs” view you’ve known for years. Open and work with any program as needed.

Enjoy saving a few extra moments in your day!

  1. Making a folder view of desktop clutter is well and good, but the desktop still looks horrible. I just make a folder on the desktop labeled “shortcuts” and move all the shortcuts into it. The same for office documents, etc. Then I can just double click on the folder, and there are all my shortcuts, nicely organized, and my desktop is clean. A much better solution, IMHO.
