5 Steps to Removing PC ClutterWritten by Demetria Zinga
Itís hard enough as it is these days to get organized and then remain that way for weeks and months down road. We are all very busy people, some of us with 9-5 jobs and one hour commutes, and others of us busy making our lives at home work for us, with children at tow and a variety of chores to do as well as errands to run. However, no matter how vastly different our lives may be, we all run into same problems when dealing with organization, and thatís: KEEPING organized. need to develop a system that helps your PC remain free of clutter and organized. Granted, this task doesnít come easy at first, but all it takes is a few extra steps each day, done consistently, that will maximize your results in long run.
So, letís say you have disorganized files all over your hard drive that you have difficulty finding when you need them. Your PC keeps catching viruses out of blue. You donít know what to do with all your spam mail. You have extra programs and freeware on your PC that you donít know anything about, and even if you did, wouldnít know what to do with them. Here are a few steps to help you get started in right direction:
1.)Get rid of any unnecessary files or programs that are on your hard drive. This requires a little homework on your part. Youíll need to set aside time to sit down and actually take a look at all of files on your PC and delete what you donít need. A few things to do periodically for optimal performance is to run a disk cleanup, use your system file checker, and defragment your hard drive. 2.)Organize all of your files and folders. Once youíve deleted everything you donít need, take a look at whatís left. Is there some way you could organize these in nice categorical folders, so that itís easier to retrieve them later on? For example, you could create a few folders underneath your My Documents folder, and give then names such as: My Journal, My TV Shows, My Videos, My Business, My Songs, My JobFind, etc. You could then place all respective files underneath these neatly organized folders. You can also take advantage of many of folders already supplied to you by Microsoft Windows, such as My Pictures and My Music.
What's In An LCD Display?Written by Demetria Zinga
Who needs an LCD display? Well, if youíre like me, having one huge hunk of a monitor sitting on your desktop is just not feasible. Not only does it take up desk space, but thereís just simply no need for all of physical mass, right? Welcome LCD displaysóthe computer monitors of present and future. From year to year these computer peripherals tend to get smaller and thinner in size with twice power and benefits. Well, stay on look out for more to come because I am certain that our current flat monitors have not reached their journeyís end yet. An LCD (which stands for liquid crystal display, by way) works much differently than your CRT, mostly because they donít project light, and therefore use much smaller units during display.
Letís talk about benefits of a flat monitor: 1.)They produce less heat 2.)They use less electricity 3.)Because they use digital signals, display is sharper and clean 4.)Speakers are generally included in screen, so you donít have to worry about cluttering your desk with speakers anymore
