Leopard Dock/Finder tip

There's a cool thing that I discovered you can do in Leopard:

  1. start out without any Finder windows open

  2. drag an item from the desktop onto the dock icon for the Finder (don't let go!)

  3. press space - and a new Finder window appears!

  4. you can then drag the file to the desired location as you normally would

(it's possible that this worked on Tiger, but I don't have an easy way to check)

    It does not happen in Tiger. I am sad that my 12" PB is obsoleted :(

    Lisa noticed that pressing space when dragging on a dock icon makes a new window for most apps - Safari, TextEdit, etc.

    I'm not sure when I would use that, but it is good to know.
