Slow motion folder zoom effect in 10.2 Desktop
Just a fun little easter egg...

Everyone knows by now that when you hold the shift key while minimizing/maximizing an app puts the "Genie effect" into slow-mo, right? Well, now in OS X double-clicking a folder does an arguably cool Genie-like zoom effect to open the folder. Now try holding down the Shift key when you open a folder (or several folders). Go ahead, Try it.

This tip only works when you are not using "Single Window View." If you, like me, use single window view in the Finder, hold down command-shift to see the Genie folder effect in slow motion.

[Editor's note: Hey, that's completely useless and cool! I shift-clicked about ten folders in column-view mode, then shift-command double clicked them ... fun!]

Likewise, if you hold shift and click on the close widget, it closes slowly.
