Does your Desktop end up cluttered with icons, making your Desktop look untidy and difficult to find the files you really need? The Desktop is a convenient and easily accessed location for saving files, but its difficult to prevent clutter building up. Desktop Tidy can help.

Desktop Tidy maintains a "Shadow Desktop", moving any files found on your actual Desktop and keeping it completely clear. This doesn't mean the files are harder to find because Desktop Tidy provides direct access to the files via a status menu icon, and also helps organise the files with the use of customisable filters. For example, you may only be interested in locating an image that was on your desktop, the built in Images filter will help you locate the file quickly and effortlessly.

● Main Features ●

● Keep your Desktop completely clear, whilst still having easy access to the files you place on it
● Customisable Views help you locate files of specific types
● Adjustable Date Filter hides files that haven't been used for a while when browsing the Shadow Desktop
● Option to flatten directories to see all files at once
● Automatic Tidying prevents clutter building up
● Ignore List allows specific files or folders to remain on the Desktop
● One click restore moves files back to the Desktop and adds them to the Ignore List
● One click function to reveal any file or folder from the Shadow Desktop in Finder

● Drag and drop to the trash
● Growl integration allows Desktop Tidy to keep you informed without getting in the way
● Desktop Tidy can be configured to ignore aliases, folders or hidden files automatically
● Enjoy your Desktop wallpaper again!
● Adjustable overwrite options

● Automatic Tidying ●

Desktop Tidy can keep on top of things to ensure your Desktop never becomes untidy. Configure Desktop Tidy to periodically tidy any files on the Desktop into the Shadow Desktop folder and your desktop will always be clear of clutter. The tidying frequency can be configured. If Desktop Tidy finds files or folders that are currently being modified, it skips them and then monitors to clean them up when the changes are complete.

● Rapid Access To Files ●

Just because Desktop Tidy has relocated your files it doesn't mean they are difficult to locate. Once Desktop Tidy has moved the files to your Shadow Desktop, it provides direct access to the files via the status menu. Files can be filtered so that older files are hidden, and Views help you locate files of specific types. Desktop Tidy makes it easy to open files, delete them, reveal them in Finder or restore them back to the Desktop for simple and convenient access to the files it has moved.

● Views ●

Views help you locate files of a specific type, and they are customisable so you can make it simple to find the files that are important to you. Create your own Views and specify which file extensions should be included. You will then have instant access to those files straight from the Desktop Tidy menu. Views can be configured to display previews instead of icons in a variety of sizes, and can optionally flatten directories.

● Restore Files With Ease ●

If Desktop Tidy moves a file or folder you wanted to remain on your Desktop, it can be restored quickly and easily by dragging files back to the Desktop. The file is moved back to your Desktop and can optionally be added to the Ignore List so that it is not moved again.

● Search Shadow Desktop ●

Now you can search the files displayed in the current view right from the Shadow Desktop browsing panel.

useful, but not longer up-to-date

Frittenbude dus

This app is very helpful to keep your desktop clean, but it hasn’t been updated since years.

my problems:
– no dark screen mode support
– search not working properly (no NAS support)
– no notification center support (support for Growl, but Growl is dead! ;-) )

Hope for an update in 2017!

Ganz brauchbar, aber keine Endlösung

Nachdem hier immer noch keine Rezension gepostet wurde, überwinde ich mich mal. :)

Ich habe dieses Tool zur ermäßgten Einführung erworben. Mein Desktop glich zu dem Zeitpunkt einer absoluten Müllhalde. Hier kann diese App eine vorübergehende Lösung sein, um den Desktop kurzfristig aufzuräumen.

Was macht es genau? Es verschiebt auf Mausklick alle Dateien auf dem Desktop in einen Ordner in der Library, der über das Programmenü recht einfach zu erreichen ist, um an die verschobenen Inhalte zu gelangen. Auf Wunsch stellt es die verschobenen Dateien wieder auf dem Destop her und man blickt wieder auf das gewohnte Chaos.

Somit eine schöne Lösung wenn man mal schnell Ordnung schaffen will, z.B. wenn man sein Laptop für Präsentationen braucht, aber niemandem im Publikum einen Blick auf den zugemüllten Desktop zumuten möchte.

Die App funktioniert soweit auch gut und macht ganau das was sie verspricht. Nachteil: Man gerät zu leicht in Versuchung die verschobenen Dateien auf dem Rechner zu horten und so seine Festplatte weiter zuzumüllen. Somit ist es definitiv keine dauerhafte Lösung und nicht zum Archivieren geeignet. Hier hilft nur regelmäßig seine Daten zu durchforsten und unnötigen Ballast zu entsorgen.

Deshalb auch nur 4 Sterne von mir, obwohl die Software an sich nichts für diesen Umstand kann. Sie selbst funktioniert wirklich recht gut.

Stürzt mittlerweile nur noch ab

Stürzt unter El Capitan ständig ab. Das Anschreibern des Entwicklers hat nichts gebracht. Offenbar bekommt der nicht mit, dass wir mitlerweile 2016 und OS X Version 10.11.2 haben.
