Everyone should already know that Leopard provides new features for Finder, such as Cover Flow and new Sidebar. However, who knows exactly the real beauty behind these features..
As you know, showing picture, reading PDF, or even watching movie come in handy with cover flow. Let’s see the snapshot I took when I watch the Leopard welcoming scene. Cover Flow view can be activated using keystrokes Command-4.
Leopard got a lot of new things here. Those are Shared and Search For.
Finder History : Icon
Leopard will store your Applications history and fortunately, you can access this history from your Finder. It’s exist on the sidebar. Search for Today and you will see Today history, as well as Search for Yesterday and Search for Past Week. The most interesting part here is you can see all Leopard pre-defined icons for System Preferences, such as Sound Preferences, with the aid of Cover Flow.
Now, change your view mode to Icon View (Command-1). There are another type of icons you can see for Preferences. More importantly, look at the bottom right corner of the Finder; there is a slider there. This slider can be used to resize the icons size (in Mac OS X Tiger, this resizing action can only be done inside Show View Options Pane).
Finder History : Path
Select on of the items inside Finder History Pane, for example Today’s. Look carefully at the bottom of Finder, you will see full path of that file. If you select more than one files, Leopard will give you the full path of a folder that enclosed both files.
