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.

Microsoft Releases Office 2004 Update

Send Article to a Friend

Microsoft Releases Office 2004 Update -- Microsoft has released yet another update to Office 2004. Version 11.2.4, a 57.5 MB download, patches a security hole in PowerPoint that could allow an attacker to overwrite your computer's memory. It also resolves a crashing bug in all Office applications involving graphics with embedded EPS data, and another that occurred with German documents that use Microsoft's German proofing tools. Two Entourage fixes complete the package: improved calendar synchronization with Exchange servers and the repair of a crash that could occur when using SSL to connect to an LDAP server.

The update is available on Microsoft's Web site as a stand-alone updater, or by using the Help > Check for Updates command in any Office application. This update incorporates all the previous Office 2004 updates, including the new Spotlight and Sync Services support in Entourage that were added in the 11.2.3 update in March. [JK]
