Open Finder Inspector panel at login

Interesting! I did not realize that System Events/GUI Scripting could access menu items that are not visible because they normally require a modifying keystroke such as the option key. I'm sure someone else has said as much in a previous hint but it took the simplicity of this one for it to sink in with me...

Wow, I had no clue this feature still existed. In older versions of OS X, Command+I opened a Get-Info window that dynamically showed info for whatever item you selected, just like this.

I missed that feature and felt like it was some sort of concession to Mac OS 9 Longbeards who felt the updated behavior was "too weird."
