My Mac’s screen is as littered and cluttered as they come, too, despite trying out a dozen Desktop and app window screen organizers. The problem is I can’t stick to an app that helps reduce the onscreen clutter– they’re extra effort. Until Cinch. Yes, this window manager is a cinch to use (pun intended).
Use Cinch to setup up hot zones on the edges of your Mac’s screen. Then, grab an open app’s window and drag it to a hot zone and drop it. The window gets docked to the hot zone. End result? No more window clutter.
Cinching an app window to the right or left edges of the Mac’s screen will automatically resize the window to fill half the screen. Cinch a window to the top of the Mac’s screen, above the Menubar, and the app window opens to fullscreen mode. Grab a window and move it away from the Cinch hot zone and it restores itself to the original size and dimensions.
No more window clutter. No more messy screen.
That takes care of app windows that get spread all over the screen, so what about icons, files, folders, photos, and more that clutter up the Mac’s Desktop? My colleague Alexis Kayhill has a couple of solutions you may like.
