    Is there any way to organize my Windows desktop? How to keep my desktop in order when there are 100+ files getting downloaded and stored in the desktop?

    I have my windows PC and I am frequent user of internet, so I use to download many files a day and its very hard to organize because it all gets dumped in my desktop and fills the whole screen, by end of day I have to sit for 30-40 mins just to organize it to the right folders, is there any other way available to organize my desktop so that I can save some time? How to do it?

    Yes, there are many 3rd party software’s which helps you to organize your desktop quite well. One of the best in this is Fences software which as great UI plus it organizes your desktop quite well.

    To download the free version of Fences CLICK HERE!!

    Install the application and open it, when it starts it asks for setting up the default fence or creating your own fence, if you want to have your folders, images, documents and other files in separate fence i.e like a box where everything gets ordered then select the default fence option and you can see it very well organize the files automatically.

    You can also change the size of the fence (box) color of the UI so on from the settings of the application.

    you try downloading internet download manager and install in your computer.this would accelerate your download speed and also organise all the files you have downloaded in categories basing on the type of download. some of the categories are compressed,images,music,programs,documents etcc.....

    Downloading too many files to the desktop will take up huge memory out of the "C:" partition and that directly impacts the speed and performance of the Computer. In order to avoid that you dont have to go for expensive/free third party softwares, the simplest way to tackle the issue is by altering the path of the Downloadable files.

    Do the following, Just open the Browser settings (Browser which you are using to download all the files from internet). Go to options and change the Location of the Downloadable files to other partitions. By doing this all the files will be downloaded to other partition and your desktop will be free.

    All the Best.

    Yes, there is a third party application which can organize your desktop namely “Fences”.

    But As you are downloading 100+ files on the desktop , it will have impact on your “C:” drive and will slow the speed.

    So request you to follows some steps in order to change the path of files being downloading


    Steps :
    1. Go to Browser
    2. Go to Settings
    3. Go to options
    4. Select Location
    5. Set the location to the other drives like “D” or “E”
    6. Click “OK”
    7. Now all your files will get downloaded on your other selected partition

    Kindly Post on our forum ,if you have any other query.

    Dear friend,

    I suggest you to create a folder on desktop dedicated for storing downloads.
    Make this created folder default location for all downloads.



    Otherwise, I suggest you to use Internet Download Manager.
    It sets a default folders in download directory.
    It automatically sorts out the things before downloading.

    Dear,

    To organise the downloaded files in Windows automatically, you should use software named as Belvedere.
    With this software you can organise the files according to their extensions, size, modified date, date created and similar
    more rules, automatically in different specified folders.

    You can use other alternatives such as
    1. Download Mover,
    2. DropIt,
    3. Delage32

    Thanks!
