Contain Your Desktop ClutterShare
There are plenty of utilities, like Camouflage, to help hide your mess. But what about an offbeat Murphy-style solution?
How about making your own Desktop image, complete with “wells” for storing different groups of files? This solution relies on the honor system. Promise yourself you’ll only store Desktop files in the designated areas. Files that won’t fit belong somewhere else.
You don’t want too many files on your Desktop anyway, it’ll gum up the works. OS X has work to do for each item on your Desktop, every time it gets refreshed. The less stuff you have there the better.
