Arrange Your Desktop: Sort Media, Documents Other File Types In A Folder Into Separate Subfolders Share
PDF Print E-mail

Recently, I came across two useful tools that changed the way I use my PC. One was PySort (reviewed here) and the other, IconRestorer (reviewed here). The former would let you automatically organize your files or icons, while the latter is designed to backup and restore the positions of your desktop icons, supporting separate backup for each resolution. Today, another similar program caught my attention, which I happened to like as much as the former two. Arrange Your Desktop is a small, yet feature-rich utility that allows you to automatically arrange desktop icons by creating separate folders for images, videos, documents, programs and other file types. The application doesn’t just work with the desktop; you can employ it for any folder you want. It’s a handy tool if you want your directories free of clutter and unwanted files. Keep reading for more details.

Please note that during the installation process, the setup program tries to download and install Babylon Toolbar as well as Coupish to your computer. This however can be easily avoided by clicking Custom installation and unchecking installation for both aforementioned tools.

Arrange Desktop Setup

The application offers a black themed UI, with glowing buttons and other tidbits. To arrange a folder, simply select your source directory under ‘What folder are we going to arrange?’ section. Afterwards, you can mark which type of file should move under what kind of folder, for example, Video, Pictures, Documents, Winrar, Programs + Shortcuts etc. However, you can rename the folders if you want by inputting the required folder name. Additionally, you can also turn On Custom Type and To option at the bottom left – in order to define your own custom extensions and where do you want to put them.

Arrange Your Desktop

Once you have finished configuring the application, just click the Arrange button at the bottom right. You will see that all your program files and shortcuts, have been instantly moved to their appropriate location.


Just for reference, we have provided a screenshot below which lets you see how the application successfully decluttered the desktop within a few simple steps.
