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.

New Enablers

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released new versions of the System 7.1 Enablers for the IIvx and the PowerBook 160 and 180. They're available on AppleLink, so your dealer should be able to snag them for you. You can also call Apple directly, or possibly get them from your user group. The bug fixes seem to be primarily in the area of high speed communications and support for the Apple Express Modem.

Here is a current list of the various Enablers, and please, read the next article for important enabling information.

     Macintosh            System Enabler Used   Current Version
     ----------------------------------------------------------
     IIvx                 System Enabler 001          1.0.1
     PowerBook Duo 210    System Enabler 201          1.0
     PowerBook Duo 230    System Enabler 201          1.0
     PowerBook 160        System Enabler 111          1.0.1
     PowerBook 180        System Enabler 111          1.0.1

Finally, rumors say that Apple will soon release a Tune-Up-like extension to fix problems with System 7.1, and also sometime soon, a 32-bit System Enabler that will clean up those dirty ROMs under System 7.1 for those of us (Mac II, IIcx, IIx, and SE/30) who depend on MODE32 under System 7.
