Organizing Files and Folders

Organizing FilesOrganizing files and folders is one of the easiest projects you can perform on your computer but it is often disregarded. The result is a mountain of files, in no apparent order and impossible to navigate.

The purpose of this workshop is to help you organize and find your files quickly, when you need, them instead of spending hours staring at your monitor with no results.

Arranging files on your computer is much like using a physical filing cabinet with paper files except filing on a computer is paperless, fast and much kinder to the environment.

Its fine if you think your current method of filing is working for you but if you have a sea of files cluttering your desktop, causing a slow computer startup and total confusion, it’s time to make changes. Keep it simple and enjoy the result. A few simple steps will keep things under control so you can spend less time searching and more time getting work done.
