Opening a Folder from the Dock

Sick of the dock on Mac OS X Leopard not being able to open folders with a simple click, like sanity demands and like it used to be in Tiger? You can, of course click it, and then click again on Open in Finder, but that's twice as many clicks as it used to be. (And while you're at it, Control-click the folder, and choose both Display as Folder and View Content as List from the contextual menu. Once you have the content displaying as a list, there's an Open command right there, but that requires Control-clicking and choosing a menu item.) The closest you can get to opening a docked folder with a single click is Command-click, which opens its enclosing folder. However, if you instead put a file from the docked folder in the Dock, and Command-click that file, you'll see the folder you want. Of course, if you forget to press Command when clicking, you'll open the file, which may be even more annoying.

Security Update 2006-002 Fixes the Fixes

Send Article to a Friend

Security Update 2006-002 Fixes the Fixes -- Apple today released Security Update 2006-002 that, along with closing a few new holes, addresses issues created by Security Update 2006-001 (which is included as well, just to ensure that everyone has it). New improvements include a fix for a buffer overflow exploit that could affect a user who double-clicked an attachment within Mail and an update to CoreTypes that closes a JavaScript-related hole. Also included in the security update are additional checks to prevent Safari from automatically opening a file that appears to be safe but isn't, the elimination of bogus warnings about Word documents and files with custom icons as being unsafe, a correction in apache_mod_php that prevented SquirrelMail from functioning, and a fix to rsync that re-enables the "--delete" command line option. Security Update 2006-002 is available via Software Update and as standalone downloads for Mac OS X 10.4.5 Client and Server (PowerPC), Mac OS X 10.4.5 Client (Intel), Mac OS X 10.3.9 (Client and Server) in sizes ranging from 13 MB to 39 MB.
