IDEA: Hot (most interesting) downloads to a separate folder
« on: October 08, 2006, 10:12:56 AM »
When on a downloading spree, files end up in the big Download folder. Some files you download are just more interesting to you, of more immediate concern. Here's an idea for a button:

You turn it on. The files that end up in the Download folder will be automatically moved to, say, a folder named "!" in the Download folder, by a scheduled process I guess.

I can't quite understand this request, could you explain it a little better?

*Before* downloading, you activate this AutoMoveThing. It starts looking in the Download folder for new files.

You click download. ... The download completes.

AutoMoveThing: "Aha!", sees a new file in Download. Rolls up sleeves and hauls it to Download\!

You turn AutoMoveThing off. Until next time you come across a really juicy, enticing piece of software. :D

Oh, i see what you mean. Then, most probably you shoud look for some download manager, like DAP or Flashget, which already have that kind of option ;)
