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.

GiftBITS/14-Dec-99

Send Article to a Friend

Welcome to our 1999 Holiday Gift Issue, which is full of great gift ideas from TidBITS readers. Although most are related to the Macintosh, we've found Mac users to be a broad-minded community, so we were happy to include ideas that fell somewhat outside our standard focus. At the end of the issue, we've included a few ideas that will help support TidBITS, and in the process, give us a chance to thank those who have already done so.

Finally, best wishes for a happy holiday season and an uneventful start to the new year from the TidBITS staff: Adam Engst, Tonya Engst (still mostly on an extended maternity leave), Geoff Duncan, Jeff Carlson, Matt Neuburg, and Mark Anbinder. Here's hoping all the Y2K fuss was for naught!
