FREE Software to Organize and Cheer Up Your Desktop

The computer desktop, the main graphical user interface that we see when we start our PC’s… The desktop is harbor for icons, windows, toolbars, folders, files, wallpapers and the occasional widget. I have found that many people keep numerous icons on their desktops as a convenient launching point for their favorite programs. Personally I like to keep my desktop completely clean (no icons).

If you are a desktop junkie, currently with 15 or more icons on your desktop, and you want to add some pizazz to your desktop, then take a look at MyCoolDeskTop. As I mentioned, I maintain a clean desktop interface; however, I ran across MyCoolDeskTop, installed it, loaded my desktop up with icons, tested it and found it does work; therefore, I thought let me put it out there for somebody’s use.  My conclusion on this was, use a small icon setting and you should have more than 15 icons on your desktop in order to get the full effect of the shapes.

MyCoolDesktop

What is cool about this FREE application is that it will automatically take your icons and arrange them in many different shapes and styles.  As a matter of fact you can select from 27 different shapes in 5 categories with the ability to save and restore your selected layouts at the click of the mouse.

  • 27 different shapes grouped in 5 categories
