It also gives you the option to manually select duplicates or similar files for deletion. Not sure if you want to delete immediately? Setup Gemini to move your duplicate files to a temporary folder before deletion - just in case.

Tip - macOS - PopClip

PopClip is one of my go-to apps; I use it multiple times every day!

Although at first glance PopClip looks like a simple utility to speed up copy and paste, it is so much more. With over 160 free extensions, PopClip is a fantastic boon to your productivity, enabling all sorts of workflows between most of your favourite apps.

In this week's tip, I take you through PopClip's basic operation. You should also check out the PopClip extensions page to see just what it's capable of.

Many apps are embracing a subscription-based pricing model, which is great for developers but can cause subscription fatigue for consumers. MacPaw (the developers of CleanMyMac and Gemini) have a different idea: a service that provides developers with a predictable income stream while limiting the number of subscriptions that consumers have to pay for each month.

That service is called SetApp, and it has been described as the "Netflix for quality Mac apps."

Parallels Toolbox

Date: 6th October 2017

Parallels Toolbox is a very unusual application. It's a toolbox that is filled with over 20 tools that each do one thing and do it well. While much of its capability can be accomplished via other utilities, Parallels Toolbox contains them all in one simple interface. It replaces the need for complicated Terminal commands or hard-to-remember keystrokes. Whether it's keeping your Mac awake, finding duplicate files, or making animated GIFs, Parallels Toolbox has got it. (It even works on Windows!)

In this episode, Allison Sheridan will walk you through each tool, and show you how to configure them to get the most out of each one.

A very useful utility for the Mac that allows you to take a partial screen capture and have it float on top of all your windows. Great when you want to capture part of your screen for reference purposes and have it available at all times.

You can also create floating panels or Shots, as the app calls them from files and also from your clipboard.

If you have shots you refer to often (as l do) you can build a library of them in the Shots Browser and create manual or smart collections.
