Expand Finder Columns Quickly

Column view in the Finder is great for navigating through your disk's hierarchy, but the columns often aren't wide enough to show the full names of all the files. To expand a column to a width that will show all file names in their entirety, double-click the handle that you would normally drag to expand or shrink the column. To expand all the visible columns to that width, Option-double-click the handle.

 
 

KeyCue 5.0

Send Article to a Friend

Ergonis Software has released a major update to the keyboard shortcut documentation utility KeyCue. The biggest change in KeyCue 5.0 is the addition of an open interface that enables third party applications to display shortcuts not natively available through program menus. Previously, only shortcuts available from a program's regular menus were accessible to KeyCue (see "KeyCue's Keyboard Shortcut Cheat Sheet Goes Global," 24 March 2009). The update also improves the update and installation process and provides other refinements, including the capability to specify on which display, in a multi-monitor setup, the KeyCue shortcut table will appear. (€19.99 new, free update for purchases made within the last 2 years, 1.3 MB)
