Tab auto-completion in Finder's Go menu
Authored by: brh on Aug 03, '10 04:18:50PM

Yeah, this is rather old news, but very useful. Unfortunately, it's kind of a sloppy tab auto-completion, in that it returns the first thing it finds, without any other options. So you need to be rather particular with how much you enter - I'm used to being a bit lazier on the command line.

This also works on the Go to… box in open/save dialogs.

And, also useful (perhaps a hint in and of itself) in open/save dialogs, entering '/' or '~' in the filename textbox will pop up the Go to… box automatically (starting you off with '/' or '~'). Useful because it makes going to a specific path just that much less mindful…
