Creating Order From Chaos: 9 Great Ideas For Managing Your Computer Files

Creating Order From Chaos: 9 Great Ideas For Managing Your Computer Files | BUSINESS and more |

It’s frustrating isn’t it when you can’t find that file? When you’ve searched every folder imaginable on your computer, and somehow it got lost….or worse, deleted. Now, there are excellent search tools for Windows that allow you to find your files, but they only work if you know the name of the file. And you don’t want to open up a program to find every file and folder that you need. It’s just nice to have things neat and easy to access whenever you need them.


I’ve put together a list of 9 things you can do to manage computer files and get the most out of your computer. Because that’s its purpose – to be moreuseful, not less useful. But computers are often more complicated in some ways when they’re not set up and used properly, which is essentially counterproductive.

Martin Gysler's insight:

If you're tired of searching your documents on your computer all day and want a system that will help you bring order to your files, then you should read this excellent post.


What I liked is that it is an article that contains all the information needed to have a clear and well organized system for the documents as well as safety tips with the various possibilities in the cloud.


An article truly comprehensive about this topic who deserves your attention.

Why You Should Work From a Coffee Shop, Even When You Have an Office

Why You Should Work From a Coffee Shop, Even When You Have an Office | BUSINESS and more |

Here at Lifehacker, we've often encouraged switching up your working environment tospark creativity and prevent burnout. Even taking a few days each month to work in a new place can benefit you greatly. Here, entrepreneur Wesley Verhoeve explains the benefits of his favorite non-office space: the coffee shop.


While team Family Records was in between offices in early 2012, we had 6 weeks to bridge until our new space was ready. During that time we were fortunate enough to be taken in as guests by awesome companies for stretches of time, and for the remainder we took over corners of coffee shops all over Brooklyn and Manhattan. The experience of working out of coffee shops was so positive that even after we moved into our new home, I made sure to get in a few "coffee shop days" each month. For carpal tunnel related reasons alone, I would not recommend working out of coffee shops every day, but here are some reasons why it might be great to try it for one or two days every month.

Martin Gysler's insight:

I do it once the week because it's a great way to be less disrupted by the computer and social media channels. This give me also the possibility to meet new people and I'm very creative at a public place.


And you what's your opinion?

Yes Robert, I totally agree with you. Today, I went to one of my favorite places (a brewery ... I do not like beer in particular, but I like this place for work). But I know, it's not for everyone ... ;-)

I've been working out of coffe shops for years and agree its a great setting...and the perks aren't bad either.
