If you’re like most people, you probably have a lot of files scattered across your computer. Maybe you have a folder for work documents, another for personal photos, and yet another for miscellaneous downloads. This can make it hard to find the file you’re looking for, especially if you’re not sure which folder it’s in.
One way to make it easier to find your files is to use automation to look for them and move them to another folder. This way, you can keep your files organized and easier to find.
Here’s how to do it:
1. First, you’ll need to create a new folder for your files. To do this, open the Finder and click on the “File” menu. Then, select “New Folder.”
2. Give your new folder a name that describes what it will be used for. For example, you could name it “Work Documents” or “Personal Photos.”
3. Once you’ve created your new folder, open Automator.
4. In Automator, select “Folder Action” and click “Choose Folder.”
5. Select the folder you just created.
6. Now, you’ll need to add an action to Automator. To do this, click on the “Action” menu and select “Move Finder Items.”
7. Drag the “Move Finder Items” action into the workflow area.
8. Now, you’ll need to specify where you want your files to be moved to. To do this, click on the “Options” button and select the folder you just created.
9. Finally, click on the “Run” button to run your workflow.
From now on, any files you add to the folder you selected will be automatically moved to the new folder you created. This can save you a lot of time and effort when it comes to keeping your files organized.
