Started in 2000 by the Institute of Business Technology, the day falls on the second Monday in February.

A similar holiday called National Clean Your Virtual Desktop Day is celebrated in October.

How to Celebrate

  • Backup your computer, including all your files, documents, and pictures.
  • Clean out your desktop. Delete or archive files that you have no use of or haven’t used in several months.
  • Organize your folders, files and bookmarks.
  • Uninstall all the programs you no longer used.

Did You Know…

…that the Perottina was the world’s first commercially marketed desktop? Launched in 1964, the computer was named after its inventor Pier Giorgio Perotto.
