Simple WindowSets

Manage groups of Finder windows.

Overview

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 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.

-- 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).

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.

Thanks for the nice comments. FYI: I'm working on something like you're requesting now! It's for creating document sets (I'll see if I can incorporate applications too) and will work very much like Simple WindowSets. Keep an eye out for it in about a month or so.

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.
