Add a Finder Quit menu to the dock
Authored by: carsten on Jul 22, '03 11:39:34PM
Works in 10.2.6, I wish I had read this earlier. Although TinkerTool can add a Quit menu to the Finder's File menu, this is ultra-handy too. Clarification of procedure follows…

open -e /Users/username/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist
Anywhere after <dict> (which is near the top,) add the following lines:

	<key>QuitFinder</key>
	<true/>
Log out and back in again, or open a Terminal window and type:

killall Dock
(it is case sensitive)
