Many moons ago I installed an application that moves downloads into a desktop folder with today's date as the title. I would like to stop this behavior.

However, I cannot remember what I did to cause this behavior.


  • 10.7.x
  • Mac Pro.

Things I've tried:

  • I checked System Preferences and Activity Monitor, and see nothing obvious.
  • I made a separate test user account, and this behavior does not occur in this account.

Any other ideas what to look for to get rid of this, would be most welcome.

So, the answer should be the Glims. Either uninstall the Glims, or config the GLims not to organize the downloading into dated folder.

I have a two places for you to look...maybe one hits

  • Look for a folder action on the downloads folder (right click on it and see if there is anything at the bottom of the list) You may have used automator to do this
  • Are you running Hazel? Check system preferences to see if it is installed
