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.

 
 

Voila 3.6

Send Article to a Friend

In addition to several under-the-hood refinements to give it a more snappy feel, Global Delight’s Voila 3.6 offers improved performance and reliability when running in OS X 10.9 Mavericks. In particular, the screen capture utility no longer crashes while importing files under Mavericks, and it fixes issues with taking screen captures using an external display and the menu bar. Voila 3.6 also improves its Text tool, retools the video export functionality for Macs running 10.7 Lion and later, enlarges the knob markers in the Capture and Object tools, and adds a German localization. Normally priced at $29.99, Voila has been discounted to $19.99 through 31 October 2013, and there’s a further 25 percent discount for TidBITS members when purchased through Global Delight. ($29.99 new from Global Delight or the Mac App Store, free update, 20.7 MB, release notes)
