Pneumatic Tubes File Router: Move Files To Different Locations Using Keyboard Shortcuts

File management is very important in order to easily find what you are looking for whenever you need it. Most people have this bad habit of placing files randomly. Moreover, if you download a lot of files off the internet such as music, videos, ebooks and other stuff, then your download folder must be asking for mercy now. However, maybe you’re thinking to organize the things now, but if you are performing file and folder management after a long time, most probably there are dozens of files and folders stacked up that need to be sorted.
