It’s easy to let apps, icons, and files on on your computer get a little out of hand as the contents of your hard drive suffer from a bad case of out of sight/out of mind. This week we’re interested in hearing about all your tips and tricks for keeping your computer organize.

Whether it’s a habit you’ve cultivated (like always properly naming your files) or an app you’ve picked up along the way (like Everything, the lightening fast NTFS-index search tool), we want to hear how you effectively organize your virtual environment. From organizing the desktop to your file archives, tips and tricks of all shapes are fair game.

Sound off in the comments with your tip/trick/application and then check back on Friday for the What You Said roundup.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
