    Still looking...I found some like Mr. Belvedere: Belvedere News, Videos, Reviews and Gossip - Lifehacker But I didn't figure out how to configure it... There were others too, but didn't play nicely with Windows 8....When I find something easy and that works, I"ll post back...

    I ised to create folders on my work machine, that I kept files in for what program I created them in.

    Now I just throw them on my cloud drive and really do not worry so much about it. Because there are more important things in my life at this point, that take priority.

    Sound's Great for you! She don't have a cloud drive and just want's to make her PC a little more manageable with all her kids that use the same PC. or until she can afford 3 more for her triplet sons! So, Thanks for pointing that out... She's still using the Default Documents, Pictures, Music and Video Folders....with a majority of them going to My Document's Folder...She also could get her own PC but can't afford it...So I'm trying to help her out in the mean time...

    Sorry, I was appreciative of you trying to help till I read your last Sentence. To her, this is important...

    One free approach could be a folder target that sends the file to another folder according to the extension. Like an autosort. You drag and drop the file on the folder and it puts it where you told it to go. Take a look at this thread for several variations:
