Why? My Mac’s Desktop looks pretty much like a digital version of the top of my desk in the office. It’s a mess of clutter this and that, everything sorely in need of decluttering. How does a Mac user go about decluttering a Desktop? There’s an app for that.
To Declutter Or Not To Clutter Is The Question?
Mac users come in all shapes, sizes, varieties, experience, and organizational skills. My skills are top notch. Unfortunately, they’re seldom used.
That means my Mac’s Desktop is somewhat akin to Pig-Pen in Peanuts. It seems to attract clutter, disorganization, and mess. Often within minutes of decluttering efforts.
Enter a paragon of organizational aptitude in Declutter, the aptly named Mac app that does to clutter what you want. One click, clean and neat.
Declutter uses smart folders to make sure files and folders left unattended on your Mac’s Desktop get some OCD love in ways you never thought possible.
For example, Declutter lets you add attractive colors to smart folders, setup rules for file names or file extensions go where they belong.
Of course, no Mac app worthy of my Utilities folder is complete without a little Before and After.
That has to look familiar.
Even if you have a touch of OCD and keep your Mac’s Desktop in pristine organization order, you know what the Desktop looks like on most Macs.
Setup Declutter and click Declutter Now and Voila! Decluttered clutter.
What is not to like?
Declutter comes with a 15-day trial period but is priced so that it probably pays for itself in the first month of use. As good as Declutter is for a 1.x release, I wish it had one more feature.
Organizing email messages.
