Do you suffer from a messy computer desktop? If you are like me, you are always saving items sent to you in emails and from the web. The fastest place to save them is to my desktop so I can shortly do what I need to with each download; whether it’s print it, place it in a file on my computer, or read the file…but far too often it turns into days, weeks and sadly even sometimes months until I
get the time take the time to work through all the downloads. Often times I would look at my desktop and feel overwhelmed:
