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.


SOHO Organizer 9.3.1

Send Article to a Friend

Chronos has released SOHO Organizer 9.3.1, a minor update to the contact and calendar management suite. The latest version adds a warning if you try to create a repeating task in an iCloud or OS X Server CalDAV account (as neither of these servers support this feature), improves display of overlapping events in Day and Week views, fixes an errant “your accounts aren’t configured” message under OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and 10.7 Lion, fixes an issue where events would sometimes disappear under 10.5 Leopard, and fixes a problem with CalDAV accounts where changes made in offline mode wouldn’t sync to the server. ($99.99 new, free update, 78 MB, release notes)
