Discussion on: Do you tidy up your workspace when done coding?

Absolutely. I'm awful at leaving windows open like crazy while I'm working on things, but like you, I just use sleep mode.

Once I'm done I close everything up and start over on the next thing. (Or even do a restart if I've been ignoring that annoying update that requires a restart for about a month)

Now if I could approach cleaning up my desktop from the million files that get dumped there during the coding and testing process I'd be much better off!

For years now, I only stick to no icons on the desktop.

Gnome also has the option to not display desktop icons when on desktop, so I get to see no icons.

I don't think I can use my computer with even a single icon on the desktop. The cognitive dissonance I'll go through, I can't handle.

Black wallpaper, empty desktop is what keeps me sane.

That is almost exactly what I say think as I finally clean it all up.

Maybe I should spend some time looking for organising tips instead of just hiding the problem by dining then all in a folder every few months! :)
