Hazel 5.0.6 macOS
Hazel is your personal housekeeper, organizing and cleaning folders based on rules you define. Hazel can also manage your trash and uninstall your applications.
Organize your files using a familiar rule interface. Filter on the file’s name, type, date, the site or email address it came from and more. And do more than just file. You can set color labels, Spotlight keywords and comments and even archive files. Hazel also cleans, sporting options to clean out incomplete and duplicate downloads. All this is done automatically in the background allowing you to focus on your real work.
In addition, Hazel can manage your Trash for you, relieving you of having to empty it yourself.
Hazel watches whatever folders you tell it to, automatically organizing your files according to the rules you create. Have Hazel move files around based on name, date, type, what site it came from and much more. Automatically sort your movies or file your bills. Keep your files off the desktop and put them where they belong.
More Than Just Filing
Hazel can open, archive, tag and even upload. You can have Hazel rename your files or sort them into subfolders based on name, date or whatever combination of attributes you choose. Coupled with Hazel’s powerful pattern matching, you can create workflows to process your files, your way.
Taking Out The Trash
Have Hazel keep your trash in check, deleting files that are too old or clearing things out when the trash gets too big. Also, when you delete applications, they can leave behind support files that never get cleaned up. With Hazel’s App Sweep, Hazel will detect when you throw an application away, search for its support files and offer to throw those away as well.
Spotlight integration. Photos, Music & TV importing. Notifications. Tags. AppleScript & Automator. Hazel provides deep support for macOS technologies, leveraging everything your system has to offer.
What’s New in Hazel 5
Hazel is now a standalone app. The new window combines folders, ruleset and rules all in one, allowing for quick navigation and editing. Folders can also be grouped.
Lists & Tables
Lists and tables provide even more power to Hazel’s matching capabilities. Match against a list of items or a table. For example, you can match against one column in a table and rename with the values from another. Lists and tables can be created in Hazel or loaded in from an external file.
Rule editors can be detached from the main window allowing you to compare rules side by side.
Hazel 5 contains numerous other improvements throughout as well as Big Sur and Apple Silicon support.
