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.


Aperture 3.3.2

Send Article to a Friend

In addition to adding compatibility with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, Apple has updated Aperture to version 3.3.2 with a smattering of improvements. The professional photo organizer now enables you to sort projects and albums in the Library Inspector by date (in addition to name and kind), and adds the capability for Auto White Balance to correct color using Skin Tone mode (even when Faces is disabled). The update also fixes an issue that affected performance when entering or exiting Full Screen mode. ($79.99 new in the Mac App Store, free update, 530 MB)
