We now have millions of people in this country who use their PC for their daily bread. While many of these PC users are quite capable and do depend on their PC for their financial lives, they are often – nonetheless – relatively uncoordinated in regard to their planned usage of that PC. Your PC, not unlike other business equipment, is complex enough to require planned usage and organized storage of its contents. Nonetheless, although acknowledged as critical there does not seem to be an easy way for most newbie users to acquire this kind of information. That, then, is the goal of this article – mapping your PC.
Mapping refers to the process of organized storage – of everything on your PC – from the perspective of security, ease of access, functionality, etc. so as to maximize efficiency and productivity. Why is that important? Experts agree that a PC that is intelligently organized with functional pre-planning and file storage that is operationally handiest supports professional PC usage that results in superior productivity. So, how does one go about doing such analysis and mapping? Simple, think of organizing a clothes closet or your garage – it is electronic ‘garaging’.
First of all, your applications should be clearly backed up and their downloaded or CD-packaged originals stored online as well as offline. You should also have – connected, or annotated along with them – the website and contact information for the vendors of each of them. Next, provide for quick and efficient access to all applications, with a desktop shortcut, icon, or taskbar residency. Prior to getting into applications and their data, however, you need to deal with the operating system and its components. You will also need to provide for the regular maintenance of your Windows Registry. You can purchase and download a top registry software package that does this. They also perform the other registry fix functions that accomplish any needed Registry Repair.
Next, in all likelihood, your application data file storage will need to be totally rethought and reorganized. This is not just the way files are named and organized but how and where they are stored. Think about the work that is performed with each application. Do you typically create draft version of destination tasks or jobs? Would those be best stored in similar folders? How would an expert data analyst number or identify these files? Are there intrinsic definitions that may be stored in the nomenclature or numbering structure of the file IDs? Where and how should those folders be organized and stored? All of these things will determine how our application data files should be named, numbered, organized, stored and access-planned for maximum efficiency. Those PC users who have organized – i.e. Mapped – their PC in this manner report greatly improved efficiency – along with an overall feeling of mastery of the device.
