Do You Download Different File Types on Chrome for Web? Then You Will Need This!!

Want to know my thoughts anytime I open my download folder?

That’s because it’s a clutter! Like everybody, I have a download folder, but unlike most people, I download a lot of stuff! Stuff that I try to manually sort out by files types (using the ‘sort by kind’ option for folders), but at the end of the day:

 

In comes an extension called “Save In.” It’s a chrome extension that lets you set apart the downloaded files into folders so that you don’t have your pictures rubbing shoulders with your document files.

It’s pretty straightforward! Just download by clicking on the link below:

Now the Save In Extension has 2 folder options by default — Images and videos:

But you can add more folders by going to options:

You should be redirected to the Settings page of the extension. From there you can remove the old names and enter the new names or new folders of your choice.

As you can see, I have five dedicated folders for images, YouTube videos, music, pdf and word documents.

To save files into the different folder, all you need to do is right-click on a file, go to Save In and select the folder of your choice.

It doesn’t stop there! You can also add a subfolder inside the actual folder by entering the name of the folder you want ‘subfolded,’  separated by a forward slash (/).

For example, say I want to add GIF to the image folder,  then I just type:

Image /gif|

The new changes will be reflected immediately!
