Hazel is your personal housekeeper, organizing and cleaning folders based on rules you define. Hazel can also manage your trash.

Organize your files using a familiar rule interface. Filter on the file's name, type, date, the site or email address it came from and more. And do more than just file. You can set color labels, Spotlight keywords and comments and even archive files. In addition, Hazel can manage your Trash for you, relieving you of having to empty it yourself.

All this is done automatically in the background allowing you to focus on your real work.

Unbelievably useful by itself. Download a PDF containing text (such as a utility bill) and Hazel can search the text of the file for words like "Power Bill" before renaming it, adding a date and filing it for you. All automagically.

Almost limitless possibilities when combined with other utilities like DropBox and KeyBoard Maestro. Terrific support for newbies too. Not sure how I kept things in line without it. Highly recommended

What rules have YOU set up?

I'd be glad to see them. I can really see the potential, but I'm struggling on the implementation. Now I only have empty trash and delete old OmniFocus backups.

The single best app on all of my Macs- Hazel is simply amazing! Not sure how I got along without it.

Hazel, plus Automator, QuicKeys 4.0, and AppleScript keep me organized and boost my workflow.

Wish I'd had this from the beginning. Four stars!

Couple this with dropbox and you are onto a winner.

changed my mac and my life. I have hazel do menial tasks, but can be a formidable organiser when needed. More useful than automator in many respects

Log Monitor is a similar program for Windows.
The homepage is unavailable, but it can still be downloaded, eg: from here.

Hazel keeps my Download folder clean and has eliminated the need for AppZapper. Must-have program.

My desktop is cleaner and my documents are better organized. Thanks, Hazel.
