Finder modifications with ResEdit
« on: January 17, 2016, 11:53:48 AM »


The attached file contains three resources, that can be used combined or alone.

- The "fmn2" adds a "Quit Finder" option to the File menu.
- The "SIZE" increases the memory partition to the finder and greatly improves stability.
- The "PICT" adds a beautiful pict to the "About This Computer" window.

Here is a collection of Resexcellence pages showing basic hacks. I learned how to make personal keyboard shortcuts in Finder from these.
knowledge is interesting

i used to replace alias with * and copy with - since OS7.

"About this computer" looks fantastic.  The other two mods seem quite helpful to.  Will definitely give this a go on my Wallstreet.
