Close Duplicate Finder windows
Authored by: llee on Sep 27, '12 08:15:06AM

I haven't made the script crash yet, but this is the kind of computer solution I like the most, I think. In former versions of Mac OS X you could press cmd-ctl-up arrow to open the parent of the current folder, then in the new window double-click then icon of the folder you were originally viewing, and the windows would reverse order. Now (Mtn. Lion) when you do that you just get a duplicate window. In other words, it's much easier to get duplicate windows now than it used to be. The fact that duplicate windows can exist at all represents a serious deprecation of the Mac OS since the classic Mac system, IMO. Of course, few people really care about that these days, I guess.
