Create Uniform Icons

This tip is provided by Dee Crocker of the Oregon State Bar Professional Liability Fund.

If you've recently added multiple programs to your computer, and each of these programs has added a shortcut icon to your desktop, your once tidy-looking desktop could be in need of a little straightening. Follow this simple procedure to display your desktop icons neatly by name.

On your desktop, right-click and choose Arrange Icons By Name from the shortcut menu. The desktop icons from your software that were once all over your desktop now snap to a neatly ordered line on the left side of your screen in alphabetical order.
