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.

Conflict Catcher 8.0.7 Available -- Casady & Greene has released Conflict Catcher 8.0.7, the latest version of their venerable utility for managing extensions, control panels, and the myriad files that enhance (or degrade!) your Mac's functionality.

Version 8.0.7 fixes a handful of bugs, adds base sets for Mac OS 9.0.2 and 9.0.4, updates its reference library, and includes new groups for the Apple DVD Player, QuickTime, and Multiple Users. The update is free for registered users of Conflict Catcher 8 and is a 1.4 MB download; otherwise, Conflict Catcher is $70 via electronic delivery ($80 for a physical package) and requires a Mac with a 68020 processor or higher and System 7.5 or later.
