They say that your desktop (the real thing, not your virtual one) shows what goes on in your head. The pun is an empty desktop surface vs. your mind.

I admit, this post is inspired by a similar article over at Verge. That being said, I think it would be interesting to see what your Windows Desktop look like. Do you like your desktop to be neat and tidy, or is it all havoc ? Show us your mind.

I’ll go first and share my desktop with you all. There’s no denying, I’m a big fan of Rainmeter and I believe my desktop shows it. Tidy yet informative. Send your desktop images to competition@www.mintywhite.com (no, there’s no price other than fame and glory) or post a link in the comments below.

I’m really looking forward to see what your mind looks like …

My desktop.


All the white icons are actual buttons, controlled by my Rainmeter plugins (Illustro, Minimal Bar and Nova).

Now let’s see your mind…

    Well I had uploaded images of my desktop but they seem to have dissappeared.

    I avoid plugins, widgets, and gadgets for security reasons. I am a minimalist at heart and subscribe to the KISS method.

    I do like the above screen though, very nicely done, and has a ton of information available to the user. Good job.

    As I like to change my Start screen and desktop around usually once a week, this week I opted for a blue feel.

  5. Theodore Hammond says:

    I like to have everything right in front of me.

    Here’s my desktop… recognize it? I built this Windows 8 PC about 4 months ago and still haven’t even got round to changing the wallpaper :)

    I find my desktop ends up being another inbox of files that require action or review; as I already have a folder for this purpose in my Dropbox, I try to keep my desktop clear and distraction free.
