Chapter 10. How to Use Folders > Spring-Loaded Folders

Spring-Loaded Folders


The Delay indicates how long you have to hover your mouse over a folder or icon in the Toolbar before its window opens. Press the Spacebar when your mouse is positioned over a folder and it will open instantly, regardless of how long your delay is set, even if you uncheck spring-loaded folders.


With spring-loaded folders turned on, you can drag a file to a folder, and if you don’t let go, that folder will open up. Without letting go of the file, you can then drag the file to another folder and either drop it right on top, or hover for a second and that folder will open for you. All folders between the first and last will automatically close when you let go of the mouse. Try it. Disk icons and Toolbar icons also spring open. Unfortunately, you cannot spring open folders that are in the Dock. Dang.
