Clean for Mac solves the problem of messy desktops by providing an automated way to logically store all those cluttered files. Unfortunately, the program also opens other applications while it operates, which is an annoyance.
The program starts out with a setup menu holding three well-labeled buttons that allow you to change the program's status, settings, and view application information. The first category displays two buttons, one to start the automatic background program, and the other to immediately clean the desktop. The start button runs the program in the background and hides it from the user's view. The settings menu asks the users where the desktop files will be stored, as well as how frequently to clean the desktop. Clean for Mac defaults to a folder in the documents section. When the cleaning process occurs, all of the folders and files sitting on the desktop are placed within this folder. Subfolders are created for each month, giving some organization to the materials. During testing, the program did clean the desktop and placed the items in the appropriate folder.
Despite some minor programming glitches, Clean for Mac does a good job at organizing desktops. This application would be a useful option for moving distracting files and folders for users who cannot manage their desktops well.
Clean your desktop with one click or clean automatically every day.
Why you need Clean:
Take a look at your desktop right now and think -- how many of those files do you actually need?
You could probably remove most of them. But from time to time, there is some useful file on your desktop, which you want to keep.
Clean moves all your files to folder you specify and organizes them by month. So you get a clean desktop every day, but your files are never lost and you can get back to them anytime you want!
* Clean desktop manually
* Start agent and just enjoy nice, cleaned desktop
* Group files into folders by month, or by day
