In this fifth article of the series called “Taking Control of your Windows Desktop“, I continue talking about organizing the Windows 7 desktop, and specifically talk about how the Desktop is actually a “folder” on your computer that you can “save” things to, just as you do any other folder. The difference, of course, is that the Desktop is a folder you can see all the time.
I also talk about the 4 different types of desktop icons (program shortcut icons, System icons, file icons, and folder icons), and how you can create folders on the desktop to help keep icons organized.
