One-click on the CleanDesk icon in the Dock will automatically organize your Desktop while a cleaning "Leopard like" animation takes place!

Your current applications will be hidden and your Finder windows will be minimized. Click their icon in the Dock to restore the windows. See the CleanDesk Demo at YouTube.

Thanks! This has the potential to help clean up my messes!

A feature request is to be able to have it re-name files with the same name "picture 1.jpg" I have tons of folders with screen shots...

Perhaps a vodcast would help to understand this tool before download.

Now you can copy & paste the link above to see a demo. I'm not really sure why simply reading the description would not be good enough to determine it's usefulness. It is quite clear as to what it does without a demo.

This also works with spanned monitors. Cleans the split desktops, no matter what is on them. This is its forte.

It is kind of disconcerting to see everything disappear, but then you get to select the application you want by simply clicking on it in the Dock.

I should add that it works with both my MacBook (Intel) as well as my G4 (PPC).

This is a cute little app that does exactly what it claims to... How a person can insult such an app by using horrible grammar is beyond me. "You're screenshot is so unelegant"... pssh. You are screenshot? Go die in a ditch, lamewad.

This app is corny in presentation, therefore, all the more awesome. I couldn't go by a week without using this to clear up some of the clutter on my desktop. And it makes me laugh every time I do.

Thanks, CleanDesk.

Thanks for an effective program to users like me to keep Mac desktop Clean; wonderful program to organize your downloads. The developer is supportive and always willing to improve his program. Just ask, as one of my friends did.

Wow ... awesome! This is very useful, thanks! I can think of many ways to use this handy app. :)

And to those complaining ... it's um ... free. Stop complaining.

Wow you're screenshot is so unelegant, you should do something more basic to present your software…

Does exactly what it says it will do very quickly. I give it a 5 for everything but value.

Since my Desktop usually doesn't have much on it very often, I won't need to use it often. It is very quick to clean up any mess when I do create one.
