My apologies. I think I have to do this by the book. In any case, here is a new, better, and better way to organize one’s belongings.
As I’ve said before, I found it hard to organize my stuff properly. I’m thinking of starting a new folder and then renaming old stuff to “somewhere else” so the folders are different from the originals.
This is a great way to organize your belongings, but I thought I would add a note about something I found myself doing a number of times: I had a lot of folders in my computer drive. Some of them were created for me, some of them (most of them) were created by someone else. And so on. It was a pain to search for a file and make sure you weren’t searching for the wrong file.
It’s a good way to organize your files, but it’s not the best way. I recently took a lot of junk I’d written a while ago and rewrote it to be a better document than the one I originally wrote. It made the files more usable, but at the cost of them being a bit longer.
File organization isn’t really so bad when you have a bunch of files that you want to move from a folder to another. That’s why I like to take my own files and split them up into categories. I like to know what file I have, or at least what file is most likely to contain a certain text. You can easily hide files when you dont want them to be viewed, but for my files it is a good idea to make the file names pretty descriptive.
This brings us to the next problem: file organization. For whatever reason, my files tend to be a mess. I use a text editor (Notepad), and I often split files up into separate categories (for example, I have an auto-download file that I have split into “download”, “download2”, “download3”, etc.). I then have folders for the individual files.
One of our own members, Brian, suggested that I create a folder for each file category. This is a great way to organize your files, but that is also a very time-consuming task. It also does not address the issue with the file name being cryptic. If I’m working on a file and have to add a description to it, I have to go back to each file and find the new file’s description on the file name.
The best place to put the file name in the header is the actual file name. If I have a file with a file name like “test.py”, I can just add a space at the end of the file name and that will be the best way to describe the file.
The other problem is that while searching the file name in the file name, you can get the file name mixed up with the filename of the original file. In order to fix this, you can use a wildcard: *.py. You can also use a pattern.
Like most things in life, the best way to fix this is to go to Tools > Options > Settings, and change the setting that says “Search for files by file name” to just “File name.
