    I take a lot of screenshots, and I never need them after I reboot. I want to store them in a separate folder (I can use something like Secrets.prefpane or other things to change the screenshot save folder) and have the contents of that folder be deleted on startup.

    How would I do this?

    I know it's somehow possible, as application Caches are always cleared on startup.

    Thanks for the help!

    Perhaps an Automator script? Open Automator, create an "Application" and use:

    1. Get specified Finder items.
    2. Move Finder items to Trash.

    Then put it in your Login Items (in the Users & Groups prefpane).

    That's a great idea. I'll try that.

    Works perfectly! I added in the end another action to recreate the empty folder. In the end it looks like this:

    Thanks! :D
