5 Effective Ways to Fix the Desktop Icon Mess

1. Create a folder called "Useful shortcuts" and move all your short-cut files to there that you don't use everyday. I did this, and believe me.. I never have to search for my Control Panel, Computer folder, Video Settings, Audio and Mic Settings, Games. It is GREAT.

2. Put your pictures and videos in their folders! Most computers come with a default Video and Picture Folder. Use it! And maybe even place a short cut to it in the short cut folder you made called "Useful Shortcuts" which is right on your desktop.

3. Pin your internet browsers, development, and editor software to your task bar. Drag them to the grey or blue rectangle at the bottom of your screen.

4. Delete the old and useless documents and text files that you will truly never need again.

5. Get rid of the gadgets, such as the clock one. You have a clock in the bottom right of your computer screen at all times and the gadgets take away from computer performance.

Hope this helps you organize and declutterize that desktop mess. -Brian
