Automatically Clear the Full Log of Your Mac Download History

Last week I saw this post on the Mac OS X Hints site, and I was concerned. I had no clue that your Mac kept a full log of your download history. I know I am more paranoid than most, but hey, even Mac OS X Hints recommends clearing it out.

It’s a quick terminal command, but I’ll never remember to do it.

Instead I created this Keyboard Maestro macro to clear it for me:

The simplest macro I have I ever created.

Now it will always be cleaned out, without me ever having to think about it.

You can download it here.
