Organize large file collections or messy folders by re-arranging items according to kind, extension, size, date, in neat folder structures

Your desktop can quickly become a crowded space even without realizing. Needless to say that it becomes tedious to start cleaning out your files, unless you rely on some specialized applications. In this regard, Organize My Files wants to help you filter files from any locations using various smart options.

Organized interface with fluid animations

One of the first things you need to know is that the application is good to go as soon as download is done, because it requires no installation. This also means you can store it on a USB flash drive in case you want to use it on different computers.

The application stores its features in a modern interface, fitted with fluid animations for information updates, high-quality textures, which give it a personal, neat look and feel. A side panel provides quick access to the default and configured folders, while the rest of the space is where you set up filters and apply them.

Organize messy folders or large collections of files

The software utility is capable of re-arranging files according to particular options. As such, you can group them by kind, extension, first letter, size, date, or batch grouping. The preview section shows a neat circular graph of file distribution based on the selected filter, with details on mouseover.

There’s also the possibility to set up custom filters. This is simply done through selection of one or more folders, as well as the exact items you want to use as filters. Note that multiple selection is done while holding down the Ctrl key. It takes all files inside the target folder and places them in new folder structures matching your exact configuration. On the bright side of things, changes can be reverted at the press of a button.


A few last words

Bottom line is that Organize My Files is sure to come in handy if you want to neatly organize a collection of files or a messy folder. Changes can be reverted at any moment, with options to manually set up filters, and various preset profiles which are more than enough for the majority of situations.

Organize My Files is a very simple and easy-to-use file organizer designed with a single goal in mind, to make your life easier.


It's all in the main window

Organize My Files is so simple that even a youngster can use it. From the moment you open the app, you'll see almost everything Organize My Files has to offer. With a single mouse click, you can finally have your files organized by name, kind, extension, size, date (day, month or year), as well as in batch of 10, 100 or 1000.

While "Desktop" is used as default folder, probably because the developer knows that most computer users have all of their files on the desktop and can't find anything anymore, you can quickly add as many folders as you want just by pressing the folder icon on the top left of the window.

On the right side pane, you'll see the folders you added, which can be organized in a batch by pressing the "Select All" button or individual. To deselect all selected folders, press the "Deselect All" button. If you want to rescan a single folder or all of them (if you selected all of them) press the "Scan" button on the top middle side of the window.

It's blazing fast and smart

Once you decided which folders need to be organized, all you have to do is to press the "Organize" button on the left side pane. If you're unhappy with how your files were organized or you did a mistake, simply press the "Undo" button next to the Organize one and everything will be in its original state.

Organizing 1000 files will take only a second, so Organize My Files lives up to its name as a blazing fast file organizer. The app is also quite smart, thanks to features like automatic organizing and smart filters, which lets you organize only images and audio files, for example, while keeping documents and archives as they are.

Works on Linux, Mac, and Windows platforms

Probably the coolest feature of Organize My Files is that it's a cross-platform application, available on Linux, Mac, and Windows platforms. Best of all, on Linux systems can be installed with a single command as a Snap package on a bunch of GNU/Linux distributions, including Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, Solus, Arch Linux, openSUSE, and Gentoo Linux.

If you need more features from this tiny app, such as recursive organizing, auto organizing with predefined schedules, or the ability to organize destinations for a group of folders, you'll have to buy the Pro version from the project's website. But we find the Lite version to offer us everything we need to organize our messy computers.
