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.

Last Issue for 1997

Send Article to a Friend

Last Issue for 1997 -- We're taking the next two weeks off for the holidays, so look for the next issue of TidBITS on 05-Jan-98. Since we will be spending time with family and friends, none of us will be checking email regularly. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your kind words and support in 1997, and wish you the best for 1998. This last year was a hard one for Macintosh users: here's hoping that next year brings renewed cause for optimism and enjoyment of what we do with our Macs. [ACE]
