Total Finder
« on: January 22, 2012, 09:22:59 AM »
If you've subscribed to the RSS Feed of Damian's Blog you'll already know what this post is about, but I'm sharing this one more widely because every mac owner is going to want this.

Basically it makes your finder behave more like an internet browser, with tabbed windows and several upgrades over the standard Finder window. Advanced features include you can now cut & paste  :-[ (yes I'm serious) and it builds in defaults that make it more akin to Windows Explorer, which is a good thing because Finder out of the box is fairly rubbish and requires tinkering to work well.

Total Finder costs $18 and has a 2 week trial, it is available here.

A worthwhile upgrade to your built in Finder is forcing it to display the file path at the top of the window, just like on Windows Explorer. This is easy to do, open terminal and execute this command;

defaults write com.apple.finder _FXShowPosixPathInTitle -bool YES

Tested on Snow Leopard and Lion.

Happy tinkering.

Also, be sure to enable the visor feature in preferences, it's very handy!
