Since then I’ve been partial to Mac utilities which can integrate into the Finder. You could call me Finder-centric. I use Column Mode, the Toolbar on the top, multiple Panes and Tabs, and the Sidebar. But there is more to Finder than what you can see.
Click Me, Baby!
Easy New File is a Finder-based utility that adds extra functionality to the right-click in the Finder. Try it. Select a file in the Finder and then right-click. What you get is a pop-up menu with a bunch of useful functions. Easy New File adds to those.
Take a look.
Sweet, right? OK, a bit geeky, but once you start using the Finder’s right-click options you’ll want more.
Easy New File lets you create a new file with a right-click. It also copies the file’s path on your Mac. And, it handles all the basic file extensions that Mac users know and love, including Word documents, TXT files, Excel, Keynote, Rich Text, plus, Unix Shell, Python Scripts, Swift files, and others.
Wait. What? Shell files?
Easy New File even has an option to open the Mac’s Terminal.app to create a file. Yeah, that’s a bit geeky but for those in the know, it’s a useful set of tricks worth 99-cents. I’ve compiled a mini-list of Tools That Help Fix The Mac’s Finder and Jeffrey has A Few Good Mac Finder Replacements.
I’ve grown to love the Finder more in recent years because Apple has begun to pay attention to how many switchers from Windows navigate the Mac.
