If your desktop looks anything close to the before image above, you might find great value in this article.
My desktop is a very important place, everything I feel is important is often placed right there. However, something always seems important. As a result of this, my desktop became cluttered.
It was like this for a while till one of my siblings asked me if this is my desktop. I thought that it was obvious that it was, I definitely was not remote controlling someone else’s desktop. That experience inspired me to fix it. To make my desktop a bit more relaxing so I did an overhaul. I will show how I did it so that you can try to do one for yourself.
For this project, find and use the graphic design tool of your preference.
Begin by setting up a foundation for your wallpaper. The first thing to do is find the display resolution of your screen and set the wallpaper to have those dimensions. Mine is 1140 x 900 pixels.
Then you need to decide what is your preferred background. It can be an image or a plain colour. I decided to make it yellow but then I realised that during the course of the day, as it got darker, the yellow background became very intense to my eyes, therefore I changed it to white. I will show you the steps using the yellow background.
The next thing I chose to do is to add a title. Something inspirational and positive. I am choosing a simple statement, one that I have been told by others “The world is your oyster!” Make sure you play with several fonts to decide what looks visually appealing to you.
What I am going to do now is to add some containers. My containers will be areas in which I can position my files or folders in and keep them organised. Those will be simple rectangles. For an additional stylistic touch, I will round the corners.
In this step what I am doing is creating categories that will fit my files and folders.
Now we have to set it as a wallpaper and organise our files and folders appropriately.
