That makes it easy to find the files you’ve downloaded online.
What about using Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo! mail in Safari? Figuring out what attachment files are where can be a pain in the patootie. If you’ve ever had trouble finding downloaded attachments or files then you need a Mac app that tracks, monitors, manages downloads.
The Magical Mystery Uberfolder Manager
My download management process differs from my wife. Once I download a file to the Downloads folder, I move it to where it’s supposed to go– someplace in my Documents folder.
Her method is to leave everything where it is which means a big mess after a few months of downloads, updates, and attachments.
Downloads to the rescue. Downloads is a downloads folder management app that keeps track of what you download to your Mac.
It doesn’t care what the file is, either. Apps, photos, documents, PDFs, email attachments. It all gets tracked and managed so you can see each item with QuickLook preview, or sort the whole mess by size, or type, or whatever.
The Downloads app works like the Finder, or a little better. It updates instantly as more items are downloaded.
All items are displayed in a simple grid with thumbnail icons. Everything can be sorted a variety of ways so you can quickly get to files you need.
QuickLook is integrated so you can preview files without opening each one in an app.
And, of course, files can be moved, copied, opened, deleted, or sent to the printer. Downloads even displays which site where the downloaded file originated.
Built in are options to email, zip it up, upload, or share the file. Simply put, Downloads tracks and manages the downloaded files on your Mac so you won’t forget where you saved a file.
