Opening new Terminal window from Finder
Authored by: odaiwai on Apr 20, '11 10:05:08PM

There's another way to go to the current finder directory in Terminal.app:

1. Open Terminal.app;
2. Type cd ' (that's cd and a space);
3. Go back to the Finder, and option-click on the folder icon in the title bar;
4. Continue holding option and drag the icon to the terminal window;
5. When you release the mouse button and option key, OS X will insert the Finder path from that window on the end of the cd command you typed earlier;
6. Hit enter.

It seems like a lot of steps, but it's pretty quick once you do it a few times.
