How many of us have our Desktop

Desktop and computer clutter

Clutter and desktop clutter in particular, is a problem that a lot of people and blogs talk about.

There have been many solutions presented to avoid clutter. And rarely do these solutions work, simply because they are not compatible with human nature and habit :) We cannot exist being so organised every single day. It takes too much effort and discipline.

Keeps Repeating

Clean Up Spree

We are in a hyper organisation mission where we do tons of drag and drop, create lots of new folders and spend a considerable time matching content to its right folder. This happens when we are really desperate or in the "let's get my life right" kind of mood.

Clutter Folder Solution

We drag all the files and folders on our desktop and drop them to a 'Clutter' folder. This repeats again when the clutter folder ends up in another clutter folder and so on it goes. This is especially employed during presentations.

Clutter & Clean Up Cycle

One thing that is certain is the this cycle of cluttering and cleanup will keep happening. And cleanup or organizing is not fast and it is a repetitive, mind numbing process.

you move or copy. It is powerful enough to create multi
levels of folders.

For instance you can type the following

Create folder heirarchy to move and copy files

This will create new folders “Trips”, “Weekends"
and “New York” if they don't exist and move or
copy the content to folder “New York”

Invariably, when we are on a cleaning spree, we create
new folders for contents based on project, customer,
type of content, events as in the case of photos and
so on.

And most of the times we realize this when we have
already started dragging files and about to drop.
Then we stop our drag, open the destination (Photos,
Projects..), create new folders and then drag content
again. Power Move solves this problem.
