Searching all your Mac’s downloads
Now and then I’ll download something and store it somewhere I can’t find later. Usually I rename downloaded files to something closer to what I think they ought to be called, and then forget what clever name I gave them. Sometimes I delete files that I can’t find the source for. For one reason or another, I lose downloads sometimes.
Fortunately your Mac keeps track of all the files you download. It keeps a database of the files coming into it and checks the files before letting you do much with them. I wrote a quick script to let you search these downloads and wanted to share it. Feel free to contribute anything you think would be helpful in the comments.
You can download the script here.
