Use Smart Folders Via A Desktop “Housekeeping” App To Effortlessly Declutter Your Digital Home (Hazel For Os, File Juggler For Windows)

Does your computer’s desktop look like a cluttered antique store? Fix it by creating a “desktop to review” folder on your desktop, where you can drag all of your screenshots (and other desktop-saved files). This folder acts like an inbox where you can process your files later.

Know this: You’re able to automatically declutter your desktop (and other folders) using Hazel or File Juggler—smart housekeeping apps for OS and Windows, respectively. For example, enable Hazel to move files from your desktop into a “desktop to review” folder after a certain amount of time. I like another Hazel feature: color-coding files based on their last modified date for more intuitive retrieval.
