How to make your PC More effective – Part 2.

Tips non Computer Geeks can use to increase PC output.

DESKTOP SET-UP

No special PC skills are needed to implement some procedures that make a PC more productive.

The PC Desktop mirrors your physical desktop in some ways. If too many items are piled up on the desktop, time will be lost searching for the item needed. Time wasted searching for items needed can be frustrating as well.

Configuring the desktop to user needs can save a lot of time. The main PC Desktop screen should only have 3 columns of icons on it. Most of these should be folders that contain items related to a particular system such as Accounting, Warehousing, Sales or some other system. This way the desktop only displays procedures related to the task being processed. This saves time by reducing the number of items the operator has to search through. This also reduces stress on the operator.

Create extra desktop sub-screens, using file folder icons. Assign a name to each sub-screen related to the content contained on that sub-screen. Accounting related files could be grouped on a sub-screen called “ACT”. The “WH” sub-screen could contain programs and data files related to warehousing processes. Manufacturing material would be grouped in the “MAN” sub-screen.
