  • Quick Tip Update : With regards to the Downloads folder in the dock conversation, and how to get it to open in Finder…. I have found it much easier to make an alias of the Downloads folder, and then drag that Alias to the Dock. That way when I click on Downloads, the folder actually opens in the finder. Like many of you, I don’t like the default behavior of the preview/grid display. Using the Command/Option/Click shortcut is almost as good, though!
