Icon Overload?


Are you using a Windows 7 or 10 machine? Do you feel the need to add shortcuts to the desktop for your most-used items and then spend loads of extra time searching through all of them for the needed program or file? Were you working on a file before lunch and you saved it "somewhere" and the food coma has muddled your memory?
STOP wasting time! Just use the Windows key...you know that extra key floating around the bottom left of your keyboard that you may never have used. Click it and start typing - either the file name or program name. As you type, you'll be presented with a list of programs, folders, files, music and photos that match your search criteria. Don't see what you need? Use the filters at the bottom of the search pane to narrow the search to just programs, files, photos, etc.
If you need to open Excel, don't send out an APB on the icon somewhere on your desktop lurking behind your open windows. Click the Windows key and start typing "Ex..." and when you see it highlighted, just hit Enter. No need to click around the screen or hunt for items. Keep your hands on the keyboard and keep on workin'.

As a matter of fact, I think the toddler was more tidy than the teenager. He has a habit of opening cabinets and not closing them, dropping things on the floor wherever he happens to be, leaving items on the counter and so on. After lots of arguments and not making much headway, I decided to pick my battles and let him do his thing in his own room. Then a few things made their way to the living room and little by little, you get used to things being out. And yes, I got lazy and didn't feel like messing with it.  Then one day I looked around and thought that if someone happened to pop in unannounced, I would be totally embarrassed. So, something had to give.

There are as many methods of cleaning and decluttering as there are ways to make a mess.  I have looked thro…
