That meant you could click on the Apple icon in the Menubar and navigate to any file, folder, or app on your Mac. What could be easier than one click access to everything? OS X doesn’t come with quite the same functionality but the free and useful FinderPop does.
What’s Old Is New Again
FinderPop lives in your Mac’s System Preferences as a preference pane, and gives you one click access to similar to the old Mac OS back in the last century.
If you’re a Mac user who still loves and uses a one-button mouse, FinderPop is your friend. Click on any blank area of the Mac’s Menubar and you get to navigate wherever.
Also built in to FinderPop is a filesystem browser– think of it as a mini-Finder– which lets you navigate through folders to files and disks visible in the Finder.
Want to know which OS X processes are running? FinderPop has a menu (and a keyboard shortcut) for that.
FinderPop preferences are not overwhelming but obvious and useful, even for non-power users. Click to add a Desktop submenu, or a Processes menu. Options let you decide how FinderPop is revealed when you click.
FinderPop is one of those unique Mac apps which brings back a much loved feature from yesteryear, cobbles it together with a few new items, lumped in with plenty of Help screens (which you’ll need, as the features list is more extensive than you think from the first glance).
