Later allows you to easily clear and restore your Mac’s workspace

Later is a free and open source Mac menu bar app that clears and restores your workspace with ease. Switch off from work, tidy up your desktop before screen sharing, schedule apps for later, and more.


  • Hide or close all your apps
  • Restore your session with just one click
  • View metadata and a preview of your saved sessions
  • Schedule apps to reopen after some time to get back in the flow
  • Save battery by closing your apps instead of leaving them open
  • Keyboard shortcuts to save and restore your session
  • Advanced settings to ignore apps, terminate instead of hiding, etc.
