Open a Finder Window with the App Switcher

If you don't have any Finder windows open and want to switch to the Finder and open a window in one fell swoop, bring up the app switcher with Command-Tab and tab over to the Finder icon. While still holding down Command, press the Option key, and then release the Command key. You're switched to the Finder, with a new default window open for you.

As the snow falls gently outside my window (and it's about time!), I'd like to welcome you once again to our annual holiday gift issue. We've all been working extra hard to massage this special issue into shape, but the true thanks should go to everyone who contributed gift suggestions. We could never have come up with such a wide variety of excellent ideas on our own, and a few of these ideas have already crept onto our own lists.

From all of us at TidBITS - me, Tonya, Jeff, Glenn, Matt, Joe, and Mark - may all your holiday wishes come true!
