I have decided to dedicate a special “life hack” or productivity hint & tip to him! Here’s the tip…
Do you keep an untidy desktop on your PC? Are there lots of files saved there? We all do it – it’s really convenient. However – how many times have you had to do a last-minute presentation and you don’t want anyone to see the files saved on your desktop. Do you then manically delete things, create a folder called “desktop” and move everything into that? Now, how many folders called “desktop” inside folders called “desktop” do you have?
Of course, the solution to this is really to have good housekeeping and keep your desktop tidy at all times but let’s just say you need a quick, clean desktop – use the “Paul Daniels Magic Desktop” feature…
All you have to do is right-mouse click anywhere on your desktop, select View and untick the show desktop icons option…
All of a sudden all your desktop icons vanish – a clean desktop! Or as Paul Daniels would say – “now, that’s magic!”
I am hoping that Microsoft will read this post and rename the feature in tribute to the legendary magician! Let’s remind ourselves of his talent and his humour. Thanks entertaining us so well Paul!
What about you? Do you have any hints and tips you would like to share?
Once again, the idea for this post came courtesy of my shower.
I’m Steve and live in a village called Alford ( home of Emeli Sande & birthplace of the Aberdeen Angus cow ) in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
I currently work in the IT industry as:
IT Productivity Coach ( they say )
Service Delivery ( they say )
Desktop Support ( they say )
IT Ninja ( I say )
I just want to share my ideas, findings and general reflections with whoever wants to listen.
