Color Coded Computer Cables

When you unplug your computer as you are revamping a room, or planning to use it in another room, here is a solution to tearing down and setting it back up.


I worked for computer companies and troubleshooting for the customers. Some were not as knowledgeable as others and so they would unplug everything and not know where the cables would go. My solution is to take cheap nail polish and before unplugging the wires color coat the cable and above the plug-in in back of computer with the same color. On the next cable use a different color.

This also is good for reminding you what end goes to computer and the one that goes to printer or fax machine by color coding. Also, if you live in your own home, use this on the plug that the phone system and computer share or fax. You will not have any more problems hooking your own computer up. I have helped several people, including workplaces, with this technique and they loved it!

So love this idea. If you don't have nail polish, acrylic paint of different colors will work also.
