I love it. I have removed all of my other launchers etc. So flexible and intuitive. Makes the Dock irrelevant. Even has a built in document reader!!! Regular updates and friendly, quick help if you need it.

Pros: Updates are making it better, items stay organized in the same way with each use.
Cons: "Customize Toolbar" option is not obvious. Switches between active displays when left open.

New version has brought dark mode (❤️) and a new, clean looking icon. This app has saved my life this week. To manage one of my work responsibilities I need to check file info in my downloads folder and mount/unmount disk images. Having this menu bar item allows me to hit a keyboard shortcut and have that info immediately at-a-glance, as well as check what is mounted and eject if needed. It has probably saved me up to an hour this week alone of shuffling around files and finding Finder windows. This is the one Finder alternative that I need.

A couple of weeks ago, I bought File Cabinet Pro as part of a software bundle. It´s quite convenient to have a »Mini Finder« with integrated text editor sitting in the menu bar. In terms of usability I consider FC Pro a 4 star application. The author has earned a 5th. star by his exceptional responsiveness: Often, when you call the attention of a developer to a bug or a new helpful feature, you get a short notice that this could possibly implemented in the future - and never hear of it again. In the case of Anthony, the developer of FC Pro, my propositions were fulfilled within a couple of hours or days by new program versions - drag & drop of clippings, PDF pages or mail attachments to FC Pro, inserting the clipboard, and so on. So carry on the good work!

Please download the Trial (on Mac App Store) before buying this app. IMO, this app is useless (I've bought it), because of the following reasons, 1. You can do a simple action in Finder, but cannot do the same action in this app, for example, switching the sidebar items by clicking BACK Button (on the toolbar). This is just one example. I'm tired to tell the all. 2. A lot of bugs (I sent them to the developer, and this took me a huge time). 3. The Ugly UI, for example, Dark Mode in this app (it is 100% black, not semitransparent). The Dark Mode in this app just exchanges white color into black color, so there is no any modifying for optimizing the looking. This is just one example. I'm tired to tell the all. Regret buying this app.

Was looking for something like this, having tried Unclutter and Yoink. My initial thoughts are that the install process is very poor. Install without the MacUpdate app is now impossible (all attempts at this failed) and while MacUpdate used to be a great site to visit for app discovery, I now find that it's increasingly used to up-sell the MacUpdate app - demoting the very thing that made the site good in the first place and in this case damaging my image of the product. Looking at the app itself, I think it will do what I want. I would perhaps like the sidebar integrated (to toggle labels). A dark mode of HUD appearance would look nicer. Also as I drag, it would be nice if the window appeared as it got close to the menu bar rather than having to drag it all the way up to the top. Still, it will be useful - especially in full screen apps.

"You can now change the sort policy by clicking a column header in list view" I'd been waiting for you to make this change. Thank you !!

If I could download a trial, I would give it a spin. But a trial seems to be unavailable.

Hi Guys. The problem with install is you need to put "Special Deal" in name column and then the serial number and it will work fine. The programme is excellent as it shows in graphic from all items. you can double click and they open in a preview window You can then alter it i.e crop or copy .You can add folders as well and drag and drop items from the window.. Its so easy to open and close as well. Click on menu item and it opens ...click again and it shuts. Great little programme well worth it. ( Their support is great as well. I had a reply within hours of asking about install problem)

Sometimes you need a quick glimpse into a folder. Having this app in the menu bar is extremely useful to me just for that reason. The quick access that is in the same spot every time is helpful as it keeps me from dropping out of my work flow to find or open a new Finder window and get to the proper folder. File Cabinet Pro always opens in the folder I need, in the view I like. It’s consistent, stable, and light-weight. Great work!

Sadly, I'm just a casual user rather than a "pro", so I guess I'll have to pass on this. I'll keep an eye out for File Cabinet Amateur though.

As of 3.6.3, Pro version of this app is pretty near perfect. Everything on my wish list is there without complaints or issues. This is the quickly accessible menu bar Finder helper you need on your Mac. Out of the way, but always there.

A good finder replacement (or supplement) that sits in the menu bar for a convenient access to folders and files.
