    I remember having a little script or app that I kept in my download folder that would allow me to move everything in the download folder to the trash.

    Anyone have something like that? Thanks

    I'm curious how a script would be more efficient than simply selecting everything and dragging to the trash.

    I could just click on the script and it would move everything instead of having to select all the files and dragging. Nice to use when I'm using the stack/fan display of that folder.

    That makes sense. I'm sure you could set something up with Automator.

    Here's an Applescript that will move everything in your Downloads folder to the trash. You can save it as an Application and drag it to the top of Finder.

    Code:
    set theDownloadsFolder to path to downloads folder
    tell application "Finder"
    	set theItems to every item of theDownloadsFolder
    	move theItems to trash
    end tell
