Organize My Files is a free desktop utility that promises to help you “end the chaos of your unorganized files.” It’s 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.
