Clean up your Windows 8 desktop

new toolbarDo you keep putting folders and shortcuts on the desktop so you can get to current work and files quickly? They are only eating up system resources, you know. Use the toolbar facility which comes with Windows 8 to create a tidy desktop and a faster computer.

Right click on the desktop and make yourself a new folder and put the files and shortcuts into it that you want to. I call mine Current.

Right click on the task bar, select toolbars and then New Toolbar

Follow the instructions and select the folder you just created on your desktop.

Admire your nice tidy desktop!

Windows 8 shortcut keys

windows 8 shortcuts I don’t belive in trying to learn too many shortcuts at once. Here are 5 which have made my life easier on Windows 8 desktop:

Alt F4
shuts down open windows but on the desktop it brings up the shutdown/switch user box

Windows key X brings up a list of useful options like Run, Disk Management, Device Manager, Search etc

Windows key C
brings up the Charms sidebar

Windows key R brings up the Run menu

Windows key F brings up the search menu for files in the Metro interface and I really like that GUI
