Using Mac for such a long time, there is this very intuitive way to open or move around files – by dragging – makes me feel lucky having a Mac.
Many will say that “Mac sucks because Mac can’t perform cut-and-paste”. Indeed, cut-and-paste feature isn’t implemented on Mac, but this alone doesn’t mean that Mac has a poor quality of built-in feature. Actually, there is much more useful built-in feature on Mac, the Spring Loader. What can it do?
Do you know that you can quickly invoke new Application being launched while dragging some items on top of the Application icon? Yes, you can do it, in a relatively short period of time.
There will be a delay, relatively small in extent, before the Spring Loader is activated. Most of the time, I use Spacebar to invoke Spring Loader within an instant of time.
It’s always useful to know that Finder is an Application.
Choose Exposé or Spaces
There is a high chance that you will need to drag-drop items across Exposé or even out to other Spaces. It’s similar to Spring Loader for opening Application, the only difference is that it brings up an opened window instead of launching it.
I believe I’ve ever seen the slider to adjust delay for activating this Spring Loader, but now I couldn’t find that slider. Anyone knows how to find this missing piece?
