Got a Great Gift Suggestion? Here at TidBITS, we've made it a holiday tradition to collect (realistic) Macintosh-related gift suggestions from readers, sauce them up with a few of our own, and serve them out in an article that lists notable presents for the many computer users among us. If you'd like to participate, send your gift idea to me at <email@example.com>. For inspiration, you might check out last year's suggestions, which consumed an entire special issue. [TJE]
Expand Finder Columns Quickly
Column view in the Finder is great for navigating through your disk's hierarchy, but the columns often aren't wide enough to show the full names of all the files. To expand a column to a width that will show all file names in their entirety, double-click the handle that you would normally drag to expand or shrink the column. To expand all the visible columns to that width, Option-double-click the handle.
