Manage groups of Finder windows.

What is Simple WindowSets for Mac

Simple WindowSets makes it easy for you to manage groups (sets) of Finder windows. Are you always digging into the same folders? Do you often have several Finder windows open to perform a task? Then Simple WindowSets is for you! It sits in your menu bar and is always there when you need it!

You position some Finder windows on your desktop, arrange them however you want, with any view options you want, and then use Simple WindowSets to save them as a set. Your set can be comprised of as many windows as you like and you can save as many sets as you like. Now that you have a set saved, you can restore those windows any time you want by selecting the set from the menu. It's that easy!

This v3.8 has been out since 7-28-14, and the developer has to fix the security issue when installing. Also not needed as you can open multiple windows with tabs natively in macOS

There are a lot of apps out there that do just one little task. Some are cool and some are just in the way. Most of the time I end up uninstalling them. This is not the case with Simple Window Sets. I use this app daily and I love it. Simple Window Sets makes organizing backups so much easier. Using keyboard shortcuts I can access groups of windows on multiple drives. I use this in conjunction with Dragon Dictate. I simply speak a client's name and all folders for that client pop open. This is a huge time saver.

-- Crashes at launch. I'm a registered user. Reverting back to previous version (3.2) makes no difference, unfortunately. Mac OS X 10.5.8, Mac Mini (2009).

This is an exceptional app. Hank is one of the developers that makes being on a Mac a great thing; he is top-notch!

5 Stars This is an excellent program, simple, easy to use and have had no problems with it at all in the last 3 months. It does the job right and it does it well. If only it could launch applications with the same ease of use.

This is a very useful program. However it works only with Finder windows. Since I have started using Path Finder, this program no longer is of any use to me. I am keeping my eye on this, however, in the event the developer makes it workable with Path Finder.

I was a user of version 2 but had to stop using as it required access for assistive devices to be turned on in Universal Access. Unfortunately I am required to run a third party application that acts up when this feature is turned on. This new version no longer requires this so I am excited to pay my upgrade fee.

I rather like this. I use a lot of different split-pane settings, and this lets me choose them quickly. The program works very well. I was in the midst of trying it out when I experienced a glitch from another program that was severe enough to prompt me to erase my drive and reinstall everything. (Let me be very very clear - Simple WindowSets did NOT harm my system. It was something totally unrelated.) Anyway, I had saved my preferences for SWS, and afer reinstalling, the program still remembered all of my previous settings perfectly. I was sold on it.

This looks promising. Finder Window Manager does similar things but despite its feature bloat, does not let you update a window set. Simple WindowSets appears to allow that.
