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.


Transmit 4.2

Send Article to a Friend

Panic has released Transmit 4.2, which adds support for Notification Center in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and fixes some issues with graphics viewed on the MacBook Pro with Retina Display. On supported MacBook Pro models, Transmit now uses only the integrated graphics processor. The update also fixes an issue when dragging files from Panic’s Coda 2 Web development app, and it no longer autofills your email address for eList signup. ($34 new, free update, 27.8 MB, release notes)
