“Where did I just save that file to?” is no longer a problem. Tag files, keep a handy floating dock of things you need.

It also allows you to instantly find anything you download, open, or save, even if you can't remember the name.
There is also a cooler area - a dock for your files - where you can store references to files that you are currently using.

-Instantly access the files that you are working on.
-Downloads from the web show up without having to remember the file name.
-Usually access it with a configurable keyboard shortcut.
-Built for macOS Sierra. Runs back to 10.9.
-Works with full screen apps - grab that file without ever leaving full screen mode.
-Shows recent files, favourites (like a dock), spotlight search, or just navigate to any file directly.
-Shows all recently changed files automatically.
-Rename or trash files.
-Preferences for many options.
-Runs as small icon in menu bar.
-Large easy to use UI hides itself when you drag files out.

When are you going to add option to hide Cooler or Fresh Files?
Also UI design with ugly horizontal scroll hasn’t been fixed for years :(

Getting Better

I rated an earlier version of Fresh 2.0.x three stars, but with recent improvements it now warrants four stars. Fresh is better at keeping track of changed/opened files, and the annoying drop zone can now be turned off in preferences. Fresh is still showing some files that have been deleted or were on a removable drive, so I'm not ready yet to give it five stars. I would also like the option to turn off the Spotlight bar and/or change the colour of it.
