One often overlooked aspect of using your computer productively is the desktop. Instead of having a pretty picture of the beach, try using one of these wallpapers.
- Layered Desktop
- Chic Desktop
- Organizational Desktop Wallpaper

If you’re a fan of the GTD (Getting Things Done) methodology, this is the wallpaper for you. Grab it (or one of the others) from here.
Available in both light and dark, the Layered Desktop wallpapers allow you to group things the same way you might organize an actual desktop.
A stylish wallpaper that lets you organize your desktop files and folders into 4 groups – “Images”, “Inspiration”, “To Do” and “Work in Progress”.
Similar to the Chic Desktop, the panel method outlined here allows you to group icons according to category. The big differences is that you specify the categories – just download the template template image and then use a photo editor to add your own text to the panels.
This used to be where I recommended a cool way to set your Google Calendar as your Desktop Wallpaper, but that doesn’t work in modern versions of Windows (without a paid 3rd party app).
