Leopard Dock/Finder tip
There's a cool thing that I discovered you can do in Leopard:
- start out without any Finder windows open
- drag an item from the desktop onto the dock icon for the Finder (don't let go!)
- press space - and a new Finder window appears!
- 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)
