Accidentally, I stumbled upon a thought provoking post with the following words:
If you’re really using your computer, your desktop should almost never be visible. Your screen should be covered with information, with whatever data you’re working on. I can’t imagine why you’d willingly stare at a static background image– or even a background image covered with a sea of icons. Unless you consider your computer a really expensive digital picture frame, I suppose.
I haven’t thought much about this before, but suddenly I realized that I can strongly relate to the above statement.Â My desktop is never visible.Â And it was always a bit awkward for me to pick a background image (I know use slide show, which cycles through all images in my Pictures/ directory) or a set of icons (I have a few in the corners of my desktop, but I never click on them, cause I never see them) to place on my desktop.
I’m going to set it to a solid color right now.Â And I’m going to remove the useless icons too.
What about your desktop?Â Does it look something like this?
