Today’s Tip -

Organizing your electronic files 


Why not take advantage of the quieter days before the Christmas and New Year’s holidays and take a few minutes to delete some of your old electronic files?

Don’t think about managing all your file folders — that can seem overwhelming. Just pick one folder to clean up or decide on a set amount of time you’ll devote to organizing. (Even 15 to 30 minutes can result in easier-to-find documents and more computer storage space.)

Using the file management tool to move, rename and delete files

Now that you are in Windows Explorer, you can move and rename files to organize them logically. You can also delete unneeded or duplicate files to clean out clutter.
