Is it just me or does anyone else have a shed load of New Txt documents all over there puters. I keep using them as a clip board and then forgetting to delete them, or I keep them cos I tink I need them and then start a new one forgetting where I created the previous one. I though I might just search for it, but when you have as many as I do its difficult and time consuming to spot whioch one you actually want.. Does that make sense? I need to be more organised. I have some post it notes in here somewhere....
I use the desktop "My Documents" link, and dump everything into appropriate document folders as I go. However I do end up with lots of files called useful11.txt and so on, which can take a long time to go through later.
I only keep program icons, and folders of program icons on the desktop, not any documents or files.
I once accidentally unzipped a file on the desktop back onto the desktop, and it exploded hundreds of files, many of them hidden and system files. It took absolutely ages to sort it all out; hence why now, I never keep anything like that on there.
I keep documents on the desktop in folders, but I name them, and date them. My file naming system is terrible though. I have files names clientTI-12-7-02.txt and others name mrkting-conver-11-15-02.txt
