If you like to be organized at work, it probably drives you crazy when you realize you have a dozen or so programs running at the same time. Somewhere buried beneath all those open screens is an Excel file, websites, your Gmail, Word files and Notepad with notes you jotted down for a meeting.

It's too much, and it's frustrating to find what you're looking for. You open, close, and minimize programs searching for the one you need now.

However, there is a way to minimize all those programs with just one click. The documents and programs remain open, but they're out of the way until you need them.

It's called RBTray. It's a simple download that, once installed, runs in the background. Meaning, it's working but it's not adding to the clutter on your screen. You just right-click on a program's or website's minimize button. That's usually a single horizontal-line icon on the upper right-hand corner of your screen.
