Command Click – Opens Stuff In The Finder

Here’s a quick tip for your Friday afternoon. If you command click (if you don’t know what the command key looks like, follow the link)anywhere around Leopard there is a good chance that it will open that file you clicked on in a finder window. Now, I know what you’re thinking, “but why would I do that when I’m looking at the file I’m clicking on?” Short answer, you wouldn’t. But, what about if you’re searching for something with spotlight and want to open the folder that the file is in? Or, what about opening something in that stack you have in your menu bar? Or, what about clicking on that icon in your menu bar for that application you use?

Yup, all work, and all are really, really beneficial. Enjoy.
