This BETA release of FinderPop adds a "menulet" feature to allow access to FinderPop via an "FP" icon on the right-hand-side of the menubar. Enable it in the FinderPop prefpane's "Options" tab. This is useful for running FinderPop - after a fashion - on OS X 10.11 El Capitan. Note that this only gives you the same facilities as "click-in-unused-menubar" - maybe I can eventually add drag and drop support. As usual, you can grab and drag stuff from the resulting FinderPop menu, and all the normal command/option/shift/control stuff applies. Command-click the FP icon to get a menu of currently running apps, Shift-click to get the Desktop menu showing disks and other items on the desktop, a "normal" click gets you the FinderPop menu as if you'd clicked-in-unused-menubar (which doesn't work for most Apple apps when SIP is enabled on El Capitan.)
See previous notes about FinderPop compatibility on OS X 10.11 El Capitan.
Ensure you use Apple's unzipper to unzip the FinderPop zip file as some third-party unzippers do not respect permissions.
Ensure that the System Preferences panel is CLOSED. Quit. Not running. Double-click the FinderPop.prefpane icon. System Preferences will
open and ask if you want to install FinderPop for all users or just you. Choose "All Users" and continue.
On 10.6+, FinderPop "sees" what it was you clicked on in the Finder via the Services subsystem - ensure that you have Folder Actions Setup
enabled: System Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts > Services > Files & Folders > (ensure Folder Actions Setup is checked.)
- 2.5.9-BETA Adds an optional menulet or menu extra as described above.
- Minor bugfixes and improvements
- Add new "Toggle File Extension" AppleScript.
Note that if you have 'Show All File Extensions' checked in the Finder Preferences' "Advanced" tab, that overrides any individual file's settings.
