mac default iconFinderPop For Mac Publisher's description

Improves and extends features in contextual menus

Improves and extends features in contextual menus

FinderPop is a control panel that extends Mac OS's contextual menus using a FinderPop Items Folder, much as the AppleMenu Items folder does for the Apple menu.

Some people may see it as a launcher that takes up zero screen real estate, merely a click on any blank area of menu bar away.

Others see FinderPop as a handy filesystem browser, allowing quick and easy access to their files in the Finder, as well as enhancing navigation in theStandard File and Navigation Services dialogs, as well as in "Path Popups."

Still others see FinderPop merely as a means to get a Windows menu in the Finder byoption-clicking a blank area of menubar, or an Applications menu by command-clicking a blank menubar area.

A few foolhardy souls claim that theFinderPoplets and the Set File Type mechanism are worth a mention. A few more think that control-free popup also works fairly well.

Here are some key features of "FinderPop":

В· Extend your Contextual Menus! - Easily add new items.
В· Powerful File Handling - Delete, Copy, Move, Open, Get Info, Preview, QuickLook, Grab-n-Drag within FinderPop (Also use Command/Option/Shift modifier keys).
В· Contents Menu - Command-control-click a folder or Finder Window to display its contents.
В· Zero-real-estate launcher - Click in unused menubar area to pop up FinderPop menu.
В· Control-free popup in the Finder - Click the mouse, hold and let go
В· Highly configurable - You want fries with that?
В· Quick Process Menu - Command-click in unused menubar area. Switch to, Get Info on, or Quit any process including background processes.
В· Quick Desktop Menu - Shift-click in unused menubar area. Display mounted disks and contents of Desktop folder.

What's New in This Release:

В· Fix a crash with PathFinder.
В· Control-free popups in 10.6 Finder
В· No longer Snow-Leopard-specific
В· Fix problem that showed up with some QuickKeys macros
В· Play nicer with FolderGlance
В· Adds a goofy scripting facility to run scripts or programs before generating the FinderPop menu, allowing these scripts to add or remove items from the FinderPop Items folder (or indeed any folder.) Basically any file whose name ends in ".fpsh" in the FinderPop Items folder (or one level below it, ie in a folder inside the FinderPop Items folder) will be run before and after FinderPop runs; the Finder selection is passed to the script, the script can examine the selection and add or remove items to the FinderPop Items folder which will then appear (or not) in the FinderPop popup menus. I'll explain this in more detail in another post as it's not likely to be useful to any but a handful of people... but it could be used to reintroduce a measure of contextuality. I was looking at supporting old CM plugins but there are numerous problems with 64/32bitness.)
