10.4: Use Automator to keep the desktop clean
Authored by: tomhannen on Jul 11, '06 04:47:34AM

Aargh... Use with caution!

Automator goes recursivley into any folders on your desktop. So for example, if you have a folder full of animation frames in different subdirectories on your desktop, this will make Automator drop them all into one folder! And you can't undo it...

Anyone know of a way to make it only act on items on the desktop, not recursively into folders on the desktop?

Also - to the person having problems with JPG files - make sure you type "jpg" not ".jpg" into the extensions box. (ignore the quotation marks).
