How Finder Tabs works in OS X Mavericks

OS X Mavericks It is not such a major update, as the version of OS X Lion a Snow leopardiBut despite this, we still expect some new features in the next desktop OS update from Apple.

And in our next reviews, we'll tell you about all the changes and innovations inherent in the new version of OS X. So where do we start? Let's start with our beloved new feature: Finder tabs.

Of course, there are some third-party apps on the market right now that work with Finder Tabs in older versions of OS X, and Total Finder is the first thing that comes to mind in this case. However, with such a solution, there is no native integration, something that many people probably really need.

How to use tabs in Finder

Finder Tabs allows you to create new tabs within a single window of Finder, just like it does in the browser SafariThe Finder tabs have almost the same eyelashes as Safari. In addition to looking similar, most of the keyboard shortcuts you use to manipulate tabs in Safari are like.

To create a new tab in OS X Mavericks in the Finder, you can use the menu command: File - New Tab, or you can use a special keyboard shortcut that looks like this: Command + T. Unlike Safari, there are no new tabs. Tab buttons, so you have to rely on one of the above commands, at least that works in Mavericks 10.9 Developer Preview 3. To close a tab, you can click the "X" button that appears when you hover over the tab you want to close. You can also use the menu command: File - Close tab, or the keyboard shortcuts: Command + W.

Moving between tabs is done in different ways, the easiest way is to simply click on the tab you want to view. However, as in Safari, you can navigate between tabs using a keyboard shortcut. Use the keyboard shortcut Control + Tab to move forward through your tabs, and Control + Shift + Tab to move in the opposite direction.

New folders open in the same way as in current versions of OS X. All new folders will open in their own Finder windows. However, you can force a folder to open in a tabbed window simply by holding down the Command key and double-clicking the folder.

One of the more useful new features of the Finder tabs is the ability to quickly move files between tabs. If you have two or more tabs open, you can safely move files between tabs. To do this, you just need to grab and drag the file to the tab where you want to move it. Everything works as simple as you can imagine, which makes transferring files between locations much faster and more convenient.

Also worth mentioning is the new feature Finder, which works in full screen mode. Again, this could have been achieved in earlier versions of OS X using the same third-party applications, but now Mavericks does it all without much of a problem.

In general, the new Finder It seems quite revolutionary. Of course, it won't bring anything extra new and unusual into your life, but it's still good to see that Apple at least it tries to listen to the wishes of its users.
