Open a Finder Window with the App Switcher

If you don't have any Finder windows open and want to switch to the Finder and open a window in one fell swoop, bring up the app switcher with Command-Tab and tab over to the Finder icon. While still holding down Command, press the Option key, and then release the Command key. You're switched to the Finder, with a new default window open for you.

Congratulations

Congratulations are in order for Australian developer Peter N. Lewis (not the Peter Lewis who writes for the New York Times). At Macworld Expo in San Francisco this year, MacUser Magazine awarded him the Derek Van Alstyne Rising Star Award. This comes on the heels of his Cool Tools award from Apple for Internet tool development earlier this year, and it's great to see a shareware developer receiving the recognition he deserves. [ACE]
