Untrash the Trash

Feeling trasher's remorse? On Snow Leopard, you can open the Trash (click the Trash icon in the Dock) and "untrash" individual items there. Select one or more trashed items (files and folders) and choose File > Put Back. This returns the items to where they were when you originally put them in the trash. The keyboard shortcut is Command-Delete - the same as the shortcut for trashing an item in the first place, since in deleting something from the trash you are untrashing it.

Best Giveaway: Video Toaster Tape

Send Article to a Friend

NewTek carries this award with their Video Toaster demo videotape, which is about ten minutes of snazzy effects and animations, all done with the Video Toaster. The Toaster grows more and more impressive, and as I see it each year, I keep lusting after one until I realize that I will never do video production. It's just not a hobby I'm likely to get into in my copious spare time. I'll depend on others for my Video Toast. (Quick quiz: Which makes darker toast, a Video Toaster or a Flying Toaster?)
