30-Minute Desktop Decluttering Solution
Despite what Apple wants you to believe, cable management is a fact of life for any PC user. Turns out you don’t have to follow the hallowed advice of decluttered.com, at least at first. If you’ve got a display with built-in cable management, a relatively simple desk, and some scotch tape (the high-quality 3M kind), making your desktop neater is easier than you think.
As you can see from the pictures below (click on the thumbnails for larger-size versions), I consolidated the cables towards the back of the display through its cable management system, and snaked it along the desk frame towards the PC below. This was done more out of necessity than aesthetics; With my workstation so close to my bedroom door even before the pre-neat days, I almost pulled the HP w2228h off the desk when I tripped on the monitor power cable.
