Ever given a presentation but your computer's desktop was mess or contained files you didn’t want the audience to see? TidyTop makes it fast and easy to clear your desktop and restore it later.

Do you want a clean desktop but don't want to go through the hassle of sorting all your desktop files? Archive your files using TidyTop. TidyTop helps you to identify files on your desktop you haven't used recently.

How TidyTop Works:
TidyTop moves all or selected items from your desktop into an archive folder which is still accessible from the Finder or other applications. No data is deleted. You can even keep multiple archives and restore them to bring the items back to your desktop, preserving their icon locations.

What's New in Version 1.1.2

- Fixed a bug that caused the welcome window to reappear.
- Added an option to (de-)select all items in the archive window.
- Minor bug fixes

Saves me a lot of grief

I put a lot of things on my desktop in the course of a day, and I never seen to take to effort to clean them up.

One click and I'm done, without losing anything.


I've installed the app. But when I click on it, I get a window that says "go to website" when I click on it, then it just takes me back to the AppStore preview page. How can I get access to the app once it has been installed (and paid for!)?????

Does a spotty job

Sometimes it works, sometime it lines all of the icons up on the right hand side when it puts them back, instead of where they were before.
