Just between you and I, it seems as if Apple has a problem with the Mac’s Menubar. It’s just so darn handy that Mac app developers put all kinds of utilities and tools into the Menubar which makes it a bit messy.
Well, here’s another must-have Mac Menubar utility which helps to un-mess the mess. But not the Menubar mess. The file and folder mess. File Cabinet is like having some of the Mac’s Finder in the Menubar.
Click and ye shall receive. Files, that is. With a single click to the Menubar.
The beauty of File Cabinet is a combination of where it’s located (easily accessible from within any Mac app because it resides in the Menubar), and what it does (a whole bunch of Finder-like file functions).
The problem with the Mac’s Finder is this. Finder has become a monolithic app that does a little of everything except be convenient and available when you need it. Using the Finder means switching away from what you’re doing.
File Cabinet solves that problem.
Use File Cabinet to navigate files and folders on your Mac. Use it to open, move, tag, trash, copy, paste, and move files from here to there– from within the drop down menu in the Menubar. Yes, you can add folders and use both icon view or column view to navigate.
Like the Finder, File Cabinet has an image viewer but handles almost every kind of Mac file format you need including text, RTF, .PNG, .JPG, .TIF and both .BMP and .PSD. Movies and audio files? Not a problem. Right from within File Cabinet you can launch apps, edit text, rename files, and find files wherever they might be.
See? It’s like a mini-Finder but in the Menubar.
From within whatever app you’re working in at the moment, File Cabinet lets you view files and images, edit a document, find files and apps. Any nits? Just one and it’s not a deal breaker for me, but might be for some.
File Cabinet does not have a try-before-you-buy trial version. It’s Mac App Store only for File Cabinet but a Pro version which also works with iCloud files is available from the developer. But there’s no trial. It’s buy or hit the highway, and that’s too bad because File Cabinet is very cool, works well, and does give you Finder-like functions with a click to the Mac’s Menubar.
