Apparently the second Monday in February is the National Clean out Your Computer Day. Who knew? I certainly didn’t. I just came across this obscure holiday while researching another topic. Somewhere along the way, a computer geek or service person probably created this day as an opportunity for us to review, cleanup, and delete old and unused files or programs. It’s a pretty good idea since many of us add programs and files on a regular basis, and then often don’t use them for a long time, if at all. Over time they can clog memory or file retrieval and possibly slow the computer down. Most computers have a large storage capacity so we neglect to give them a good housecleaning.
So, get into the spirit of the day and take a look at your files and programs on the computer –
- Organize your files and folders.
- Delete junk files.
- Delete duplicate files.
- Delete old files and programs not being used.
