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.

Conflict Catcher Rebate Update

Send Article to a Friend

Conflict Catcher Rebate Update -- Back in "Macworld Expo NYC Superlatives" in TidBITS-438 we wrote that Casady & Greene's Conflict Catcher 8.0 will cost $79.95 when it ships in early September and will include a $30 rebate. That's true, but the rebate, good through 01-Jan-99, applies only to previous owners of Conflict Catcher - essentially providing a discount for those who upgrade. Our apologies for any confusion.
