Optimizing Desk Cable Management with Omnidesk
Cable management is one of the least exciting aspects of a desk setup. It can be pretty tricky to figure out which cable management method is the most efficient for your working style.
This is especially so when you have many electronic devices with cables. It can even take you more than 15 minutes to untangle many wires. It might be a pain initially, but it can simplify your life when you find out a system that works for you.
Unfortunately, simply cleaning and putting things away isn't enough. To avoid a cable mess effectively, you'll need a proper fool-proof strategy to feel the results.
Scroll down to find out how to manage your desk cables effectively!
Step 1: Start
The first step is sometimes always the most challenging. Tangled cable ties are a tedious but consequential problem to deal with. As a result, many people tend to put it off until necessary to deal with the situation.
Start from the very beginning. First, disconnect everything that is connected to your PC and surge protector.
Step 2: Power Placement
The location of your power outlet is essential to your desk cable management. Most people typically connect it to the nearest available power strip and insert a surge protector in.
But if you put a surge protector at a better location, you'll have a much easier time managing your cables.
So step back and think of the location of your power sources.
Underneath Your Desk:
This is often the best location. Your power surge may be routed away from view under one of the greatest pieces of cover at your disposal, your desktop, by placing your surge protector under your desk.
On The Floor:
Mounting your surge protector isn't essential if your workstation placement provides plenty of covers. The best spot for your surge protector is sometimes on the floor, out of sight.
Surge protector hiding spots include:
• Between the wall and the desk cabinet
• Behind other furniture and objects
In A Box:
If you're on a budget and you have a super minimal layout. Even a box will do. Sometimes less is more, after all.
Step 3: Cable Management Accessories
Many cable management accessory products will help you maintain an uncluttered cable setup without having to make any drastic changes.

Step 4: Connect and Organize
Connect all your power cables back to your PC, and conceal and direct the wires away from your setup using the abovementioned cable management tips. Then, do the same thing with your surge protector cords.
With the help of your skillfully hidden surge protector and cable management accessories, all the cables should look streamlined once they're reconnected.
Tighten Loose Ends
There will be power cords that, despite your best attempts, will not fit neatly into your cable management. Some wires will dangle carelessly, and huge cable bundles are unsightly. This is the point at which you tighten everything up.
Use cable clips to control errant cords that didn't make it into your cable management container.
Use cable velcro ties or zip ties to secure loose wire bundles, paying specific attention wherever many cables are connected.
Tighten the computer cables
If you must leave a set of cables exposed, use a cable management sleeve to wrap them up neatly.
That's pretty much it—you now know everything there is to know about desk cable management.
Step 5: Adjust
Suppose you find that the route cables aren't having difficulty connecting with the power strip or don't like how all the wires and cable holders are set up. Make the necessary adjustments.
It's your computer desk setup, and you should be the one that benefits the most.
You'll figure it out eventually, and you'll have a desk wire system that makes you happy.
