Disable Caps Lock

If you find yourself pressing the Caps Lock key accidentally as much as I do, note that you can disable it entirely in Mac OS X. Open the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, click the Modifier Keys button, and in the dialog that appears, select No Action from the Caps Lock pop-up menu. You could remap it to another modifier instead, but that might make using differently configured Macs more difficult.

Default Folder 3.0.7 Squashes Bugs -- St. Clair Software has released Default Folder 3.0.7, an update to the company's shareware utility for improving file access through Open and Save dialog boxes. (See "Tools We Use: Default Folder" in TidBITS-475.) The update fixes a few potentially crashing bugs (including one when Internet Explorer 5 was running), no longer includes invisible folders in its Recent Folder list, and improves handling of its optional pop-up menu for accessing folders from the Finder. The 685K update is free for owners of Default Folder 3.x and those who purchased version 2.x after 31-Jan-98. Otherwise, the program can be updated for $15 or registered in full for $25. [JLC]
