Did you know that every third Monday in October is National Clean Your Virtual Desktop Day? 

With more people than ever working from home during the plague years of 2020 and 2021, it's important to organize one's virtual (as well as "in real life") desktop. 

Who else fondly remembers when one's computer, laptop or tablet was new and the desktop was clean and organized? The trash file was empty. The only files on the computer were the ones the manufacturer created. No viruses. No documents. And it seemed so fast, too.

A clean, organized space of any kind offers a fresh canvas and fewer frustrations. 

It can be done! Backup the hard drive. Archive old files. Create short cuts. It will help the computer run faster and help you find what you need more quickly.

Next...Organize those photos. Put them onto a thumb drive or use Google Drive or Amazon Photos. Clean out that email, too. At least mark all of those emails as unread! Delete unused icons.

Repeat the process with the smart phone. Eliminate unused Apps. Remove games no longer played.

And on all technology devices, update the virus protection, and run it. Then schedule it to run on a regular basis. 

The Personal Computer Museum located in Brantford, Ontario Canada created this "holiday" to both celebrate and clean up one's technology.
