Quickly neaten your Desktop using Stacks

Updated April 4th, 2020.

Finder Month officially ended with the turning of the calendar, but the Stacks feature is so useful that I thought I’d sneak this article in under the same “Finder Month” heading. Next month: it’s all about Mail.

Does your Desktop look like this? Mine does… or it did, before I started using Stacks.

The Stacks feature was introduced in macOS 10.14 (Mojave) and it is also present in macOS 10.15 (Catalina). In my opinion, it’s the most useful new feature in Mojave (or Catalina), by far.

Watch this video and learn how to use Stacks. Also learn about changing the way Stacks works, to suit your own needs.
