* This application is a "menu bar app". The application icon does not appear in "Dock". Instead it appears in main menu bar. You can change preferences from the icon in the main menu bar.


Q. The application does not open. It does't work.
A. This app is a menu bar app. App icon does not appear in Dock. It is designed to serve you discreetly without occupying Dock space. The application icon appears in the right part of the main menu bar at the top of the screen.

Q. Isn't there any "Preferences" for this app?
A. Yes there are. The menu icon of this app is located in the right part of the main menu bar at the top of the screen. You can choose this app's Preferences here.

Q. It would not let me delete the app.
A. Finder does not let you delete an app that is currently running. Quit the app first. To quit the app, choose Quit from this application's menu in the main menu bar at the top of the screen. (Even though this app may be running, while in stand by, its CPU power usage is almost nothing.)

Q. How do I change sort order?
A. Press and hold Control key then click a tab. Contextual menu appears. (Depending on device configurations, right-click on mouse or two finger click on track pad may be used.)

Q. Great Idea, too slow to be useful -- by briankilpat 
A. Popup Window speed is quite good and acceptable on a slow disk system.

Q. My MacBook Pro crashed (from "Dave's App Review")
A. Please check if your model is listed as a recall model. We had another user whose faulty graphic board caused system crash.

Brilliant program! Splendid for organizing files and, hence, organizing one’s thoughts and writing projects. Away better than Unclutter. (Unclutter is a good program, by the way. Just that this is much superior. Popup Window does much more than Unclutter.) The creators of PW need to write up a more thorough user’s guide, however. It would save some headaches But, once you get the operations figured out, it’s wonderful!

Great for lap tops

I have been using this app for years now, it is stable, handy, easy to use and really helps to organize my desktop on my 15” Mac book pro. Very flexible so it can be adapted to your needs. This is one of the most valuable space and time savers I have. Thanks for coding this!
