Install Hazel

Hazel requires a Mac running OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) or later.

To install Hazel:

  • If you haven’t already done so, download the latest version of Hazel from the  Noodlesoft website .

  • Double-click the disk image file you downloaded.

  • Read the license terms and click “Agree” to accept them.

  • Double-click the “Install Hazel” icon. You may see an alert stating that Hazel is an application downloaded from the Internet; if so, click “Open.”

  • System Preferences opens and ask if you want to install Hazel for the current user only (which places the file in Macintosh HD   Users   your-username   Library   PreferencePanes) or for all users of this computer (which places the file in Macintosh HD   Library   PreferencePanes). If in doubt, select “Install for this user only.” Then click “Install.” System Preferences closes and reopens.

  • If you are installing Hazel for the first time, it asks if you want to install some sample rules. Click “Yes” or “No,” as you prefer. If you click “Yes,” also read the explanation that follows and click “OK.”

  • Eject the installation disk image. You can do this by clicking the Eject   icon next to the disk image icon in the Finder’s sidebar.

  • Optionally drag the disk image file to the Trash.

  • The Hazel preference pane should display automatically. If it doesn’t, click the Hazel icon in System Preferences.

  • Click “Info” followed by “Check Now” to verify that you have the latest version of Hazel (and to install the latest version if not).
