Trickster 3.4

Get immediate access to recently used files on your Mac.

Trickster is a utility that gives you immediate access to recently used files on your Mac. This program can help you boost up your productivity and complete various file management tasks a lot easier, such as sending documents to Trash, opening files, sharing images, etc.

The tool lives on your Menu Bar from where you can access recently used files, change the program's settings according to your needs, and open its comprehensive help manual when needed. The utility uses a small amount of CPU resources while operating on your Mac and features easy-to-configure settings.

Before using the program, you first need to choose the folders you want to Trickster to monitor for you. You can also select the file formats you don't need the program to keep under observation, choose which directories to be ignored while monitoring, etc. Afterwards, the utility will add items to its recently used files lists (images, documents, music, etc.).

In my testing, Trickster worked exactly the way it was advertised on the homepage of the developer, without displaying any errors or slowing down other running programs.

So, the utility proves to be a reliable solution for monitoring and getting access to recently used files on your Mac.
