MacMost Now 829: All About the Desktop

The Desktop is really just an ordinary folder where files are also shown on the Desktop background in addition to a normal Finder window. You can also choose to add items like disks and servers on the Desktop. It is easy to keep your Desktop clean and organized with the help of a few commands. But best practice is to use your Desktop only for temporary storage of files and organize them in your Documents folder as soon as you can.

    I've been a Mac user since the beginning of time, and had a desktop that looked like day after 4th of July parade. After listening, watching and then doing clean-up and understanding how the Finder really is your friend, I have a totally organized life! Thank you Gary for all you do to help us understand and improve our interface with Mac OS!
