Automating the process of sorting files in a user’s downloads folder on Windows by file type.
This script iterates through the files in the downloads folder and moves them to their respective sub-folders. If the sub-folder does not exist, it is created then the files moved into it.
This script requires Python to be installed for it to run. To install Python, click here.
From a terminal, navigate into the project directory.
$ cd downloads-folder-automation
To run the script:
$ python downloads_folder_sorter.py
To have the script run automatically, configure it in Windows Task Scheduler according to this tutorial.

I drew a lot of inspiration for this script from Nitish Sharma’s medium article.
