Apple macOS Mojave's Stacks Automatically Declutters Desktop

If Your Desktop’s Always Cluttered AF, Apple’s Latest Update Will Sort That Right Out

You're either the type of person who drags, deletes and renames as you go along, or you wait until you're practically login cross-eyed before you take action. Either way, when it comes to your desktop, a little help goes a long way. So you'll love macOS Mojave, the new update which features Stacks – a way of automatically organizing files into neat groups to help you stay on top of things.

The initial work is based on file type, then you can sort the rest according things like date and tags later on. It certainly helps if you often put off organizational projects because it's all just too messy.

Apple has also announced that Finder will allow you to see files in Gallery View and the Preview Pane will show all of a file's metadata, so you know exactly what you're selecting when files are similarly-named. With Quick Actions you can do things like password-protect PDFs direct from Finder. and Quick Look lets you rotate and crop images, mark up PDFs and trim video and audio clips while viewing them in full size and without having to open an app to do so.

If it's gonna make us look more organized at work, we're all about it!
