10.6: Get window previews in the OS X Dock
Authored by: osxpounder on Sep 23, '10 01:21:13PM

One thing that really helps me is that I use a mouse or trackball that allows me to set a button to "click lock."

Now, I can "click lock" a file when I want to drag it, and I don't have to hold the button down while I do any of the following:

- activate Exposť and drag to a window there,
- activate Spaces and drag to a window there,
- use Cmd-Tab to switch among apps, then drag to a window there
- hover over any finder window or folder icon, which triggers 'spring-loaded folders' and can almost always get me to any file location available.

Once I discovered the joy of 'click-lock', I decided never to do without it. Oh, if you use a recent MacBook, I think you can configure your trackpad prefs to do a 'click-lock' by enabling 'tap-tap-hold' or something very similar.
