Need Organizing Help? Colorful Vista Folders!

Remember a few posts past, when I asked if anybody had a solution for Windows Vista color coded folders?  I had this on Windows XP with the help of programs like Folderico.  That is when I decided it might be better off creating my own colorful Vista folder icon pack so I could just do this myself – no extra program needed!

Download the Vista Colorful Folder Pack! (.zip)

All of the icons are  in the .ico format, and supports the following sizes:

256 x 256, 128 x 128, 64 x 64, 48 x 48, 32 x 32, 24 x 24, 16 x 16

Why color code your folders? Having color coded folders for certain documents is more than just about “making things pretty”.  It is also very helpful when it comes to getting things done.  Let’s say you use the green folder for your bills, green is the color of money – hence it makes you jump right to it instead of having to hunt through all those yellow folders.

Depending on how popular these are, I might release more colored folders in the future. Feel free to use them however you like.  If you pass it around to a friend, might also mention where you got it and ask them to subscribe to my RSS feed for more!

Best of? Dual Monitor Wallpapers

Figuring out how to stretch my desktop wallpaper from one monitor all the way across to the next was one of those tasks I felt stupider about after words, because it is so simple. The secret to it all is to find a really long and large wallpaper and then set it to “tile” in your wallpaper preferences.

I can’t tell you how long I searched to figure that one out, so consider it a freebie from me to you. Now that I have one 22 inch (widescreen) monitor and one 19 inch monitor side by side I had to find some cool wallpaper to tickly my desktop fancy.

DeviantArt saves my day yet again! They have a slew of widescreen wallpapers to pick from, and here are a few of my favorites.
