Even the most organized amongst us can end up with a desktop or folder littered with files. Folder Tidy brings order to that chaos. The app quickly slices and dices all those stray photos, PDFs, documents, and videos, and sorts them by file type into appropriately labelled sub-folders. Use the app to clean up your desktop, Downloads folder, or thumb drive of project files.

Two simple steps to a more organized virtual workspace.

Using the app couldn’t be easier: Just pick the source folder (the one you want to tidy) and a destination folder (where you want the files to be sorted), then click Tidy.

Folder Tidy’s default rules sort the most common file types, as well as disk images, text clippings, fonts, and even source code (handy for developers).

A once cluttered desktop now organized by file type. Joy!

After the app has worked its magic, it opens your destination folder to display the results. If you aren’t happy with the sorting, click Undo Tidy to put everything back where it was and tweak the rules accordingly.

You aren’t limited by the app’s default rules however. Create your own to catalogue files based on the date you created or modified them or by the Finder tags you’ve applied. You also get a few options for how those files are organized. For example, the app can put everything in a new, dated folder each time it’s run—perfect for, say, running Folder Tidy on your desktop daily.

Create a custom rule to organize your photos by the year they were taken.

Or go even more granular; limit rules with conditions to handle only files larger than a certain size, for example, or that were created before a specific date. Or have the app ignore particular files or folders.

Folder Tidy is fast and intuitive, and once your files are sorted the way you want them, it will be easy to find what you need.
