Created by the Personal Computer Museum in Brantford, Ontario, Canada, the annual holiday was first celebrated in the around the world in 2010. The unofficial holiday encourages people to organize their desktop and the files on their computer.

Find Your Files

Just like in real life, it is very easy to collect useless and unimportant files on our computers and desktops. And just like when we are surrounded by clutter, we tend to get unproductive, a mess on our computer desktops can negatively affect our motivation and ability to work well. In addition, a cluttered desktop can not only slow down our computer, but it can also make finding files more difficult.

This holiday promotes cleaning up and organizing your desktop so that when you work on your computer you are not bogged down by all the unnecessary and unimportant files.

National Clean Your Virtual Desktop Day is also sometimes known as Clean Your Virtual Desktop Day.

How to Celebrate?

  • Start off the week right by cleaning out your desktop.
  • Organize all your folders and reclaim that picture of a sunny beach as your screensaver.

Did You Know...

...that the early computers were the size of a room? That's a far cry from the tiny computers we are all familiar with today!
