Sort Downloads folder based on file type
Authored by: freaktheclown on Oct 07, '09 08:15:56AM

There's an even easier way than this: Smart Folders.

I made a Downloads folder in my user Library folder and set Safari to download everything there.

Then I made smart folders (All, Archives, Documents, Images, Music, etc.) by searching that downloads folder, and simply saved them to the Download folder in my home directory.

It's a lot cleaner, it updates automatically, and it's a lot more customizable -- you can easily make smart folders for ANY criteria you want.

Sort Downloads folder based on file type

Could you be more specific? I tried to make a smart folder but it lists all files in the subdirectories as well! I just want so sort the files using the modification date and NOT the creation date. This thing abut OSX is retarded. very confusing.
