Opening a Folder from the Dock

Sick of the dock on Mac OS X Leopard not being able to open folders with a simple click, like sanity demands and like it used to be in Tiger? You can, of course click it, and then click again on Open in Finder, but that's twice as many clicks as it used to be. (And while you're at it, Control-click the folder, and choose both Display as Folder and View Content as List from the contextual menu. Once you have the content displaying as a list, there's an Open command right there, but that requires Control-clicking and choosing a menu item.) The closest you can get to opening a docked folder with a single click is Command-click, which opens its enclosing folder. However, if you instead put a file from the docked folder in the Dock, and Command-click that file, you'll see the folder you want. Of course, if you forget to press Command when clicking, you'll open the file, which may be even more annoying.

Send Article to a Friend

Econ Technologies has updated ChronoSync to version 4.41, a maintenance release with a number of stability enhancements and bug fixes that follows the previous 4.4.0 version that introduced the company’s free InterConneX file management and file sharing app for the iPad. ChronoSync 4.4.1 addresses a problem with out-of-control CPU resource usage when ChronoSync or ChronoSyncBackgrounder were idle, enhances compatibility with InterConneX and support for AppleScript, fixes bugs related to changing targets for remote connection profiles, enhances error reporting to better explain what’s going on behind the scenes, and fixes potential crashes relating to the closing of a sync document and when losing and/or regaining connection with a target. ($40 new, free update, 27.1 MB, release notes)

The addition of InterConnex into the CS/CA mix is really valuable for any multidevice office or home. Seamless, easy access to your home folder, on the same network on all devices, and via Back to My Mac on other Macs.
