Finder modifications with ResEdit

<< < (2/3) > >>

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

I prefer Panels to the Finder.

One of you ResEdit wizards should be able to add the needed resources to Panels so I can replace the Finder in the System Folder.

MacTron, could you explain this a little bit more in detail? What does this one do exactly? What are the size values that we can see here? What are the original values? Which machine do you recommend it for?  (Shall I try it at my 9600/G4800 as well for example?)

Since there's been no response, I'll add a bit of detail.

Adjusting the SIZE resource adjusts the default memory allocated to the application (in this case, the Finder).  It's the base value you see in a Get Info window.

Increasing this value means that if you have any additions to the Finder that take up more memory, you won't run into out of memory errors.  This can get complicated, as System Extensions sometimes modify Finder resources, and some of that gets stored in the System stack, some in the Finder stack.

I'd recommend this for any machine that has more than 256MB RAM, honestly.

exactly, it is techically the same thing as the "get info" sizes of APPLs.

or if you plan to unstuff or rename 5000 files in a folder procedurally while the window is open.
