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.

New TidBITS Sponsor: Cyberian Outpost

Send Article to a Friend

New TidBITS Sponsor: Cyberian Outpost -- We're pleased to welcome our latest sponsor, Cyberian Outpost. Founded by Darryl Peck, whose Mac credentials include being president of the New York Macintosh Users Group and founder of Mac developer Inline Design, Cyberian Outpost was an early Internet software and hardware retailer and one of the few that existed solely online. We've worked with Cyberian in the past to provide deals for readers on some of the items we review in TidBITS, and Cyberian has become the place we turn first when we look for a piece of software. For more information about Cyberian, check out the two-part interview we conducted with Darryl Peck in April of 1996. And of course, take a look at their sponsorship text each week for deals on Macintosh products. [ACE]
