I used to use the hanging files and have switched to using folders only. My desk file drawer does not have a sliding block so I use a book end instead. I use legal folders with a 1/3 tab all on the left side. I use a labeler with smaller font to keep the name near the top of the tab. To find a folder I run my thumb across the tabs which exposes the label and makes it easy to see the and find what I am looking for.
