quit finder
Authored by: whoadoggy on Jan 09, '03 03:26:02PM

Not directly relevant to this but I recently noticed on my powerbook, there is a quit finder command (under file of course). This allows you to temporarily clear off all the junk that is accumulated while doing something else. Strange thing is, on my desktop machine, this doesn't exist. Both are running 10.2.3 Any one else seen this? Is there a preference for this somewhere?

It's a preference in TinkerTool if you have it installed. Under the Finder tab there's a check box to add a quit option for the Finder. If you don't have TinkerTool then I'm not sure what added it.

A lot of app can add this feature (previously mentioned TinkerTool is one of them) and it can also be enabled from the command line (though I can't remember the exact syntax).
