Your whole life is on your computer. You may pay your bills online and use an Excel spreadsheet to keep tabs on your budget.

You've got Word documents you've written, contracts you've saved as PDF files, photographs, videos, anti-virus software and much more. As you know, most of them have an icon that pops up on your computer screen when you open it in the morning, and they stay there the whole day.

But there are so many icons for all the programs you use for work and your everyday life that you can't even keep track of them anymore. There is a way to cut down on the clutter and keep your life better organized.

Virtual desktops like those from WindowsPager let you keep your icons and computer programs on virtual machines. That just means that everything you currently do can be organized onto their own desktops.

If you're working from home, you can have all your work-related programs and icons on one virtual desktop. (See photo.) You might have your Gmail, Word, Twitter and LinkedIn there. You can have another virtual desktop where your spouse keeps their work-related programs.
