3-28-2012 10-51-32 AMIs your desktop full of icons with no room to spare?  You have YOUR OWN Hoard in the making!
It’s Called eClutter.

 

3-28-2012 10-51-32 AM

Eventually, you will run out of room on your desktop.

As you can see, there is hardly any room left to put anything else on the desktop.  Not only that, this hoard or eclutter has folders that lead to other items contained in the folder.

Of course, you do not want to loose anything, even though you might not have used it for a very long time, but the desktop clutter is simply too much to handle.  It’s difficult at best to find one item.  This is eclutter and it is similar to the clutter in your environment, even though you might think that your environment has no clutter at all.  This is a digitized version of a hoard!

Many people are in denial about their hoard, thinking that they have no hoard at all because everything is in its “proper” place.  They might think to themself, so what if my desktop is loaded.  Nobody sees it anyway.  It’s not really hurting anyone, right?  Wrong! 

This may be a new form of

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or OCD.

One problem with that way of thinking is that it is difficult to find an item in a digital hoard, just as it is difficult to find something in a physical hoard.  You might find yourself thinking that “I had some item over here... Someone move it.” only to discover that it wasn’t there at all.  Then you ask yourself, “Where did I see that?”  There are many questions that could pop into your head when you have OCD.

I Used To Spend Time Searching

For A Program To Run.
 

Is Your Desktop So Cluttered Like Mine That You Have A Hard Time Finding Things?

The picture you see above is my Desktop before I started using Command Control.  Now, thanks to this software, my desktop is clean and I can still run the same programs I had on the desktop.  I do it all by a simple click of a button.  How easy is that?

      Not only can I run the programs I want, once I place the proper link into Command Control, I can delete an icon or link that appears on my desktop.  In effect, I am clearing my desktop of eclutter - breaking down the hoard one file at a time.

By the way, I called the program Command Control because I wanted to control my eclutter, my digital hoard, by giving a simple command.  Thus, Command Control was created.

Now I Pick It From A List And Press A Button.

How My Hoard Started.... Does This Sound Familiar?

At one point my Desktop was so cluttered with items that I had to start creating folders on the Desktop and then put the items in that folder, just to clean up my Desktop.

I ran out of monitor real estate.  No kidding.  There’s only so much you can put on the monitor space.  When your Desktop is almost completely loaded, you’re forced to do something, whether you want to or not.  My solution at that time was to create a folder system to house the links.

The folder names I used were relevant to the type of items I would put in the folder.  For instance, I made a folder named Website Design and then placed all the software I use for designing web sites in that folder.   This removed the items from the Desktop but left a folder in its place.  These were links to software represented by an icon that occupied space on the Desktop. This was the only way I could clear the clutter from my Desktop and still keep the link intact.  You might ask yourself....

Have you ever been in the position that you've installed software and then after the installation was complete, you discovered that there were anywhere from 1 - 3 new items on your Desktop?

Everyone Wants To Be On Your Desktop

Nearly every computer program you download wants you to save the download to the Desktop.  Why? 

They claim it is easier to run the installation from the Desktop.  That is partially true.  But what you end up with in the end are icons, which are actually links to programs, as well as the icons from the installation.  The clutter starts to grow by leaps and bounds.

Another reason that software companies want to put their icons on the Desktop is simple and it goes like this:  out of sight, out of mind. 

Yes, they want you to see their icon so that it's embedded in your mind.  You can become a mouthpiece for them by telling others about their program.  Actually, if you see something 29 times (according to one study in advertising) then you will remember seeing it once.  How many times do you look at your Desktop during the course of a day?

Alternatively, you can find the same links that appear on your Desktop for running software by clicking on the Start button and then search.  Of course, during the search you may need to click on a folder which then opens another listing.  Need proof of this?  It's simple.  Find Notepad. 

Here's the process for running a program that is not on your desktop without using Command Control:

  • 1.  Click on Start
    If you wait a short time, another listing will appear.  You can also click on All Programs when you first activate the Start button.
  • 2.  Browse for Notepad.
    Oops, you cannot find it in the listing because it is hidden from view.
  • 3.  After spending time searching, you discover that Notepad is located in the Accessories folder with a list of other programs.
  • 4.  Click on Notepad.

Again, this four step process is typical of what you need to do to run a program that is not on your Desktop.  This is another reason why software companies like to have their icon on your Desktop.

Also, Step 3 above can be a real time consumption process especially if you use the software on rare occasion.

Sometimes you will find a company name in the list of "All Programs" but might not recognize that name while still searching for a program that the company created.  You remember what the program does but do not recall the company that made the software.

For instance, Company X produces a video package called Video Connect.  Video Connect consists of several programs:  Connect Capture, Connect Edit, Connect Export, Connect Upload, Connect Create. 

Now suppose you need to capture a video.  More than likely you will remember that you have a program that does capture video but you probably will not remember that Company X made the program.  This increases the time it takes to find the program you want.  There are many companies that do this type of thing.

Are you tired of using a four step process

that could be done in two steps?

How does clicking on a Title and pressing a button sound to you?

Yes, it is really that simple.

Let Command Control handle things for you and bring real production to your computer session.

What about web site addresses that I want to save?  This is your “Favorites” hoard!

Every browser allows you to save a "Favorites" entry.  The only problem with that is over time the number of favorites increases and you're left in a similar position that you have with your Desktop. It's more eclutter in a smaller space.  Can you imagine have a couple thousand favorites?

Command Control can take care of that problem too.

Simply add the web site to your list and then click a button.  How easy is that?  Your web site entry will pop-up immediately.

Using Command Control for Your Research

Command Control can act as a repository for all your website links.  As such it can contain an extremely large number of records - in fact, nearly 1 billion records - that can store all your links and executables.  Executables are your programs that have a file extension of exe, like notepad.exe.

This comes in handier than a browsers’ favorites because eventually the favorites have favorites which makes trying to find something difficult.

It’s much easier to pick a repository “category” and see all the links in one table!

CategoryBrowse

 

In the figure above we have a category that is defined as “Operating System Program.”  Contained in this category are two familiar programs called Notepad and Calculator.  We could add as many programs as we like to this category.

Further, Command Control allows you to create as many categories as you like.

 

Connect to any file on a shared network drive.

Command Control can connect to any file you have either on your hard disk(s), in a shared networked drive that you can already “see” from Explorer, or the more recent addition to storage called the cloud.

For instance, suppose your daughter or son has a shared directory (folder) on their personal computer.  The name for their computer is MyBaby and the shared directory is MyHomeworkPapers.  The network connection you would see on your system is \\MyBaby\MyHomeworkPapers\.  Any file that is in that “path” can be seen by you and then placed in Command Control as an executable.  Here is a screenshot to show a typical path linking to a jpg file on the shared network folder.

What about limitations?  Are there any?

Every software on the market has limitations, either by design or computer hardware.

Command Control also has a limitation.  The limitation is that you cannot have more than 1,000,000,000 (1 billion) records in the database.

Do you think you'll ever reach anywhere near a billion records?  If so, then you might run into a problem, however, most people will never reach anywhere near that amount so Command Control will work for you and make your life easier and cut off valuable seconds or minutes from your searching.  This could be a substantial savings because your time, like everyone else, costs.

The only other limitation is that some DOS programs might not run.  This is not the fault of Command Control but the operating system.  So, a program like defrag.exe, the software that comes with any version of Windows (R) that is used to clean up your hard drive, will pop-up a cmd window and then it will  disappear.

There are work-a-rounds for such programs that you'll discover later.
