Howto: Thumbnails of your to-do list

July 15, 2006 at 10:01 am | Posted in tips and tricks, xubuntu | Leave a comment

This is a creative idea.

1) Create a text file on your desktop (Open up Thunar, go to ~/Desktop, right-click, mouse over Create Document, and click Empty file), and name it To-Do List.

2) Edit the file, and write in your to-do list. Save the file. Its contents will be shown on the desktop. To make the icon bigger, right click the icon and click Stretch Icon. Stretch it as you see fit.

That’s one use for thumbnails, and I’m sure there are many others (Cheat sheet for the terminal, perhaps?)
