How to use a spatial Finder in OS X
Authored by: sipatel on Feb 07, '10 08:16:52PM

In OS9 if you opened your HD, option-clicked on a folder, the open HD window would close and a new properly-sized window of that folder would open.

OSX changed that behaviour in 10.5 or 10.6, in that it simply replaces the contents of the open window of the new folder but does properly resize the window.

Now that is an absolute PITA because when Iím digging deep into folder structures, I donít want multiple windows open but I also want each new window to be properly resized to show all the contents. I have even set up the scroll-wheel button on my MS Intellimouse to perform this action, but having to manually expand/contract window sizes is tedious.
