    Desktops -- let's see 'em everyone!

    Well, I was thinking about this recently, and I said to myself: "self, I wonder what other peoples' desktops look like here on the forums. We've done pictures of each other and things." "We have" replied self. "So why not desktops?" I asked. "Why not?" self replied.

    So that's where this is heading. Show us your desktops! You can see mine here:

    I'm afraid my boring desktop hasn't changed since the last time we had this topic

    Here's a screenshot... but it's so boring it's not even worth a look.

    Hey AES - you can find a catalogue of desktop shots here

    I've just arrived at work to find mine completely changed!!! A new Win2000/Citrix combo has been installed, leaving me with TWO desktop environments!!

    Eh -- when I have a good idea for a thread, it tends to always turn out the thread has been introduced before.

    ::sigh::

    Mine is boring and kinda sloppy, but here it is anyway

    I'm surprised more people don't use the Quick Launch bar to hold their program icons. It leaves less clutter, although I get lazy when it comes to cleaning up mine

    Heres mine its a bit messy ATM. I normally save everything to my desktop and sort through it all on Saturdays but I was a bit busy this weekend
    I try to just keep the My Computer, My Documents and Recyle Bin icons or sometimes veiw as a webpage so there are none.

    Well, here is mine... As you can see, it is the movie "The Matrix" themed... Screensaver and all...

    It is 10 x 7, but I shrunk it to 8 x 6 for size sake!

    Well, here's a shot of my well organized and simple desktop.

    Here are some other background images I use when I feel the unction:

    waterback
    fear
    the designers network
    eye, for when I'm in a weird mood

    There's a few others I can't find as well... Some of these are images I like, others aren't... Ah well

    I won't bore anyone with my at work desktop, it's pretty basic. If you want to see, here's my desktop wallpaper. Note, the resolution is for 1280x1024, 170k.

    These are some great desktops guys -- keep them coming! There are a few enigmatic people on the forums that I would really enjoy seeing their set up!

    Here's mine: www.help4newbies.com/images/DESKTOP.gif

    I try and keep it organized as best as I can. On the right is web design stuff and on the left is the rest. And in the very center is none other than Miss Britney Spears! The love of my life J/K.
