Reliably relaunch the Finder
Authored by: Frederico on Jan 23, '04 10:08:31PM

And to be another one of those 'here's yet another way to do things' guys, use TinkerTool or similar to add the 'Quit (Command-Q)' to the Finder's menu; then either click the Finder's Dock icon to relaunch, or, better, assign a hotkey to activate/launch the Finder (I use Control-F).

So, when I want to quit/relaunch Finder, it's Control-F, Command-Q, Control-F. Sweet.

Too bad Application Switcher (Command-Tab) will not allow you to quit (Q) Finder like other apps, though it will, of course, let you hide (H) it.
