Poll Results: TidBITS is Ten! Almost 1,400 people participated in last week's poll asking when you started reading TidBITS, and it took a few days for me to figure out why 1993, 1994, and 1995 were the most popular answers. Then I realized that those years corresponded with the heyday of my Internet Starter Kit for Macintosh books, which talked only a little about TidBITS but included it as the example of how to subscribe to a mailing list.

Show Recent Items in Snow Leopard
The Recent Items submenu in the Apple menu is handy, but what if you want to work with a file in there in the Finder, rather than open it? Just press Command when that menu is showing, and all the Applications and Documents change to "Show ... in Finder." This feature is new as of Mac OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard.
