Dress up your Mac Desktop

A while back I said I found it very hard to keep myself neat and tidy on my MacBook. Not a problem with Windows or Ubuntu. Just Mac. So, a fortnight ago, I decided to tackle this head on. I used Cool Iris and took a desktop screenshot (command – shift-3) which I then set as my desktop. I went up to the Apple icon on the menu bar and changed my Dock to left to get rid of the kindergarten carry on at the bottom of my screen. I then downloaded some folder icons and changed my Apple folder icons and labeled them with the colours by right clicking and selecting. The spaces between the pictures now serve as folder organisation spots and the pictures themselves are handy areas to temporarily store files as I am using them. The Dock works really well at the left. I feel so much better now and I also feel as though I am in charge of my MacBook instead of it being in charge of me!
