Smart Folder Icon


Smart Folders in macOS are some of the most powerful tools available in many applications for finding things you’re looking for and for discovering items and patterns that would be very difficult to do manually. Unlike real folders on your computer, Smart Folders are really just saved searches. This month, we’ll explore the power of Smart Folders as they can be used in not only the Finder, but also in other applications like Contacts, Music, and Photos. You won’t be able to look at your data again the same way!

In addition, we’ll talk a bit about macOS Services. Services pre-date macOS as they derive from the older NeXT operating system and, again, they provide tools that are often overlooked yet very powerful. You can even make your own and add yours to the Services menu making you a power user!
