How do you keep your Mac neat and tidy? Is your Documents folder alphabetized? Are folders inside color coded?
Is your Mac’s Desktop clean of files, folders, documents? If not, you’re the perfect candidate for what I call the Desk Drawer Cleaning Method™. It’s like having an app that shoves everything on your messy desktop into a hidden drawer.
Where Did All My Files Go?
Mac users tend to be one of three groups. Those users in the Felix Unger group who manage files, folders, documents, movies, photos carefully, delicately, like the file clerk in a legal office.
Everything must go into the right place. Or else.
At the other end of the scale are the Oscar Madison’s of the Mac world. Files? What files? They’re in there somewhere. I hope.
And there’s the rest of us, lumbering along trying to organize, trying to find, hoping for a better way. Here’s the answer to the question,“ Where did all my files go?” They’re in there. Somewhere.
The trick is to be in control of your files rather than be controlled by your files.
The Digital Desktop Drawer
Desktop Cleaner is the one-click app that basically takes everything on your messy desktop (if your desktop isn’t messy, then you can stop reading) and shoves it into a folder inside your Documents folder.
There. All done. Clean Desktop. What’s not to like?
Oh, there’s that Where did all my files go?” question, still unanswered. Well, they’re in there. Desktop Cleaner gives you a spotless, dustless, shiny Desktop but with a caveat or two.
First, you can tell it what to keep and what to stuff.
You decide the destination folder in your Documents folder (handy for backups).
Second, files get sorted and organized automatically into more folders, making them easy to find later. Instead of wondering and wandering all over your Mac to find what you were working on yesterday, you’ll know almost exactly where it is.
Or, at least, the location will be narrowed down.
A New Generation App
Desktop Cleaner is part of that new generation of Mac apps which cost almost nothing, but do one thing very well, usually with a click or two. They’re priced right, easy to use, and provide some functionality that Apple left out.
