I used Windows 7 snipping tool to take an image of the desktop and saved it to the hard drive as a jpg.

The file size was 495kb - too big to insert in the forum so I resized it.

I installed Image Resizer Powertoy Clone some while back which integrates with Windows Explorer - you right click on a file for the menu, choose "Resize picture"

This opens a sub-menu enabling you to select the following sizes

Small - 855 x 480

Medium - 1366 x 768

Large - 1920 x 1080

Mobile - 480 x 320

I chose the medium setting and the file size came out at 196 kb - perfect.

Click her - choose 32 or 64 bit

Here's the desktop of my main computer. Sorry to be boring but I just dont like icons all over the place very much. The taskbar is on autohide for most of the time.

Not kidding. This is it, and AlanHo has seen it too !

I take it the "Birmingham Clock" is ready for the North / South divide when David Cameron gets into putting all the clocks forward one hour permanently Alan ? :lol:

For once I agree with you John :rolleyes:

I can never understand why folk have soo many icons all over the desktop.

While working you cannot see them so what's the point.

Apps I use regularly are on the taskbar at the bottom and once launched remain open all day.

Tip for Win 7 users.

There is a small rectangle at the far right bottom corner of your screen.

Press that to min all open windows - to show yer desktop.

But you prolly knew that.

I suppose it's all a matter pf personal taste. I like my shortcuts on the desktop, and have created many of them myself.:)

andsome said: I like my shortcuts on the desktop, and have created many of them myself

Yes. - I have always imagined you as a creative type of person.

Unfortunately under the new European laws coming into force in October this will no longer be allowed, and Internet Service Providers will be responsible for removing any desktop shortcuts not automatically provided by retail purchased software, or obtained under a creative licence

Paragraph 4 subsection 2: It is therefore deemed that any desktop shorcuts not created within the creative licence software parameters 1995 or not falling within the boundaries of purchased retail services act 1998, will be viewed as a loophole for likely hacker intrusion, and therefore as a threat to the European computer network.

I have looked fully into this, and they are willing to be a little lax if you have either a German Shepherd or Rotweiler dog in close proximity to either the computer or server.

Anticipating the forthcoming October clause, and having only a Golden Retriever, I decided to remove all icons and shortcuts from my desktop.

John.
