Show Recent Items in Snow Leopard

The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it? Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.

Workgroup Server 95

Send Article to a Friend

Workgroup Server 95 owners have a little longer to obtain a performance-enhancing software upgrade. Last January, Apple introduced AppleShare Pro server software version 1.1 and A/UX 3.1. The new software can provide up to 40 percent better performance when used with high performance hard disks. Those who purchased an AWS 95 before 01-Dec-93 may order an upgrade for both programs for $199; owners of AWS 95 systems who purchased them on or after 01-Dec-93 but who have earlier versions of the software are entitled to a free upgrade. The upgrade offer has been extended until 02-Jan-95. [MHA]
