We all love those little tips that save us a click or two, and I’ve got another one for you. For those of you on a Mac, you might remember how I showed you a faster way to install Photoshop brushes. This little click saver is pretty much the same thing. Details after the jump.
Before I begin, yes, I’m one of those “side dock guys,” it’s just what I prefer. Anyway, If you’re like me, you like to keep your desktop tidy and as clutter-free as possible. I didn’t like Stacks when they first arrived with Leopard, but now that we have list view, I find them much more useful.
When you use stacks, you might want to use the “Open in Finder” option to navigate directly to your folder in order to drag/copy files, or whatever. I do all the time.
If you want to save a click, just Command + Click on the Stack itself, and Finder will automatically open your Stack for you to browse! That’s it!
Gotta love saving a click. They really do add up over time ;)
