I debated whether to send this or not as its message should be obvious to any careful reader of this thread. But with apologies for adding one more email to your mailbox, I thought it helps in removing an erroneous impression as well as defending the concept of expressing *ideas* of all sorts for some possible benefit.
• I remain unboundedly grateful to the developers of TeXShop.
• I think this list-serve (which sees, by far, a more than a global picture) is one of the best and I continue to learn from reading it. Thank you all.
• What I wrote had, in its title, the word "Wish" and it was politely put. That means here is an idea, a wish; nothing else.
• I have understood that good and bad wishes are treated by the author of TeXShop as he decides.
(I am not concerned about expressing a 'wish' that gets ignored because it is impractical or too selfish in its scope. I imagine the wish *might* trigger thoughts in the author of something entirely different that could be useful.)
• Any forum should allow for expression of ideas and wishes. The good ones survive. The bad ones disappear. Thus prohibiting them is short minded.
Thank you Richard Koch! Thank you contributors and experts.

Least we forget to do this, I want to send a huge “thank you” message to those who have created, and maintain, this platform, as well as provide friendly, everyday, valuable support with all our technical questions.

>>> Reason: One might typeset *myfile.tex* and then change a few things, use a related new name, and run *myfile2.tex*. It would be nice if all auxiliary files of all versions could go to the bottom of the alphabetical list of the files in the working folder.
>> There’s no reason TeXShop couldn’t be rewritten to do the kind of manipulations you want before/after feeding things to TeX proper, but this is probably not worth it.
>> Assuming you’re using the Finder to view your files (and not a window in Terminal.app), I suggest you experiment with “View->Arrange By->Kind” in the Finder menu or (by holding down the option key) “View->Sort By->Kind” in the Finder menu and see if those don’t do what you want to do.
