Finder: Place current folder in the dock Desktop
There is a keyboard shortcut to place the current folder in the dock. The shortcut is not listed in the Finder menus.

When you hit Command+Shift+T, the currently selected folder in Finder gets a shortcut in the Dock.

[crarko adds: Pretty simple, but yes it works. It does show up in the Finder's File menu if you press the Shift key, replacing Command+T (Add to Sidebar).]

This is actually found on the File menu in the Finder. If you look at the menu without any key press, command-t is to add the item to the Sidebar whereas when you press the Shift key, it changes to add the item to the Dock.

For the record, this works for files as well.

This must be 10.6+ or 10.7+; on 10.5 that menu item is "Add to Favorites" instead.

I don't even know where "Favorites" are in the UI any more on 10.5 (I remember that folder from early versions of Mac OS X; it still lives in ~/Library/Favorites, but I can't find it exposed in the Finder UI anywhere).
