Every once in awhile, I surprise myself with clicking on an icon – and suddenly something happens that I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I just experienced this with my downloads file on my mac. Until today, I didn’t know I could “arrange” downloads in various ways – including by date/time! If I’d known that for the past two years, I could have saved SOOO much time digging through that file to find the last thing I downloaded.
It’s hard to break or mess up your online tools. They’ve been designed fluidly to appeal to many different styles. If you want to do something or see information arranged in a certain way, don’t be afraid to look it up!
If your “system is organized all wrong”, you may be able to easily rearrange things to better suit your needs.
