How Many Icons Do You Have On Your Desktop?

  babybell 14:12 28 May 2010

The reason I ask is that I am a terribly tidy person when it comes to my PC and as a result I only have 5 icons on my desktop.

1) My Computer
2) My Documents
3) Firefox
4) T-Mobile Dongle Icon
5) Recycle Bin

My boss' desktop by comparrison has no free space on it whatsoever and makes me shudder whenever I see it!

Last night a friend came over and commented on just how incredibly tidy my desktop was, which got me thinking...

Am I in the norm, or is a cluttered desktop more common that I imagine?

"I am a terribly tidy person when it comes to my PC"

Does that mean that you're untidy elsewhere?

Definately, I tend to be messy around the house but once in a blue moon I will suddenly get an urge to clean and I will make everything sparkling clean again. Doesn't happen very often.

My PC though is a different story, I hate it being cluttered.

NONE.. they are all in my systray...

Pointless having a nice wallpaper on your desktop cluttered by icons...

My desktop doesn't have any icons, they are just a click away pinned to the start menu. I use my own abstract art as a background and dont want icons ruining it.

27 program icons
6 shortcuts to folders
14 word, excel, pdf files

My house is spotless through if thats a help...

22 and counting. I normally wait till there are quite a few more then move them all into a folder I creare on my desktop

The desktop of many of my flock when asked to administer to it- to have to wade through masses of 'stuff' that should not be there - emails, documents, and so forth-
There they stand by me, having to guide my hand through this mess so that I can get started on the problem.
I bet they think 'And he is supposed to know about computers'.

'Keep it simple' is my motto
here is my desktop

All the program icons and documents are in their folders.
And I minimize what is running at any one time.
