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.

TidBITS Updates

Send Article to a Friend

TidBITS Updates -- The rapidity of important news releases surrounding the clone licensing situation recently prompted us to launch a Web-based project we'd been considering for some time. When news breaks after we've published an issue of TidBITS, as it has for the last few weeks, we'll provide a tight summary on our TidBITS Updates page (with headlines on our home page). We also plan to publish announcements of important software releases, occasional letters to the editor, and information about other appropriate topics. As with TidBITS, however, TidBITS Updates will focus on what we consider to be the most important news, not everything that happens. We're still completing our internal tools for TidBITS Updates, so, for now, use our home page to access TidBITS Updates content. [ACE]
