It's a big week for Windows, but this afternoon is for top tips. So let's talk about something even more pressing than new laptop hardware and AI. I'm talking about storing files on the desktop. That was a controversial reader-submitted tip I discussed a few weeks ago. One reader offered up an even better idea that will give you easy access to the files you're using on the desktop — without actually storing them there. ⌚ This entire email will take you two minutes to read. ☝️ One quick thing: I'd like to thank the nearly 130 people who chipped in to support Windows Intelligence. Support from awesome individuals like yourselves will help keep Windows Intelligence sustainable so I can continue writing it for many years to come. Based on your feedback, I've also added the option to contribute via [PayPal]( in addition to [contributing directly](=). Thanks for being part of this journey with me — I couldn't do it without you. Now, let's get back to Windows. Remember: If you'd rather not receive these Monday tip roundups, [you can easily opt out of them](=) without affecting the rest of your subscription. ☑ [Got it — don't show this again](=)​ This week's reader suggestion 📂 While storing files on the Windows desktop may work for some people, there's no denying that can quickly lead to chaos. There's a best-of-both-worlds solution that will give you access to files on the desktop without creating a big mess. 💻 This works on both Windows 10 and Windows 11. ➜ This tip comes from Windows Intelligence reader Lynn G., who recommends a much less chaotic way to easily access files from the desktop. Instead of storing the files on the desktop, store them wherever you want them — and then create shortcuts to the files on your desktop instead. There's another convenient trick to create shortcuts on the desktop in Windows, too: A right-click drag-and-drop. 🖱️ Just locate a file or folder in File Explorer, right-click it, and keep holding down the mouse button. Drag the file or folder to the Desktop (or wherever else you want to put it,) and then release the mouse button. Then, select "Create shortcuts here." [Creating a desktop shortcut with right-click drag-and-drop.] Boom! You can easily access a shortcut to the file or folder on the desktop. When you're done working with it, you can delete the shortcut from your desktop without losing the original file. (You can use right-click drag-and-drop with multiple files or folders at once, too, for quick and easy bulk shortcut creation.) ⌨️ You can do this with copy-paste, too. Select one or more files or folders in File Explorer and press Ctrl+C or right-click them and select "Copy" to copy them. Then, right-click the desktop and select "Paste Shortcut." Done! (The menu looks a little different on Windows 10, but you'll see the same "Paste shortcut" option in there.) [The "Paste shortcut" option on the Windows 11 desktop context menu.] By the way, if you've previously hid your desktop icons, you can reveal them by right-clicking your desktop and selecting View > Show desktop icons. 📲 Looking for this week's Android Intelligence reader tip?
