That’s right, folks, it’s time for our next Show Me Your contest! We want to see your desktops! Do you have a sneeze of folders, photos, and applications and spend hours locating what you want to open? Are you particular about keeping your icons categorized and neatly arranged? Or are you one of those weirdos who prefers no icons at all?
Here’s my desktop. This is what it looks like most of the time. I like to arrange my icons in loose “clusters” based on categories, like work apps, personal apps, work folders, etc. I also like simple wallpaper with no more than a simple graphic in the center of the screen, otherwise I’ll go crazy, cut all of my hair off, and set the house on fire trying to locate my icons amidst the chaos.
A winner will be randomly selected to win two free movie tickets (Maximum $30 value) from Fandango.com!
