It’s been a while since my last post. This time I’m posting a productivity tip that sure helped me and I hope it will help you too! When I use Finder to navigate on directories and I want to go the previous directory I had to press the ‘Back’ button or the “⌘+[” (that’s cmd + ‘[‘) combo. Since OS X allows to reorder the position of various controls I took advantage of that. By moving the ‘Back/Forward’ controls closer to the file and directory listing I can navigate faster since my cursor covers less distance. Since I do more with less then it is all good! Read on to find out how you can do this.
You can do this by right clicking on the toolbar and then selecting ‘Customize Toolbar…’. You can then rearrange as you please! The only potential drawback is that it can take a while to get used to. Once you do though you will be wondering why you didn’t do it earlier! I hope this helps.
