Every now and again I run into a 99-cent bargain. One example is the great Mac app window manager Magnet. With a click you can put an app’s window or windows in their place for easier organization that massages your visual OCD gene quite well.
Another 99-cent bargain that is a must-have on Macs is called Re:Desktop. One click and you get your Mac’s Desktop visible again. Say goodbye to Finder, folders, files, open applications, and the general clutter that inflames your OCD gene in the first place.
Does this look familiar? Messy? And this is on a good day.
One click can make all that clutter go away.
Don’t think of Re:Desktop as a one-trick pony because it has more than one useful trick. The claim to fame is a single click to the Mac’s Menubar to view an ultra clean Mac Desktop, which, to this slightly color blind and sometimes designer sometimes known as the little engine that could, is a big time saver.
Re:Desktop works with a simple click to the icon in the Mac’s Menubar. There’s an option to use the Dock icon, too. And, if you’re a keyboard centric Mac user, the shortcut Shift+Command+Space Bar does the trick, too.
All the Mac’s app windows– Finder included– disappear.
Right-click on the Menubar icon for Preferences.
Those are drop dead simple, too. Toggle the Menubar icon, toggle Launch at Login, toggle the Dock icon.
Sweet, right? To get all the app windows back again, right where you left ’em, simply click again.
Not bad for 99-cents.
