Open Folders and more with Quicksilver

Language : English Quality : High Has Audio : true Source : Other Media : QuickTime
I am still working on the overview video of Quicksilver, but in the meantime you can see how I use it to open folders and even move documents from folder to folder. It is much easier to see than to explain, so I would watch the video first. Now, why would I want to do it this way as opposed to dragging and dropping (the Macintosh way)? It is easy and convenient in a lot of cases

Quicksilver does a lot, but it is a simple concept on how to use it.
  • Invoke it by hitting the key command you set up (I use Option-Escape).
  • You are in the Subject pane - Type the first few letters of the document, folder or application you want to work with.
  • Hit Tab to move to the Action Pane - Now type the first few letters of what you want to do with the subject (Open, Move, Copy, etc).
  • Depending on the Action you chose, a third pane might open - in this pane, again type the first few letters of what you want (if you are moving it, where do you want to move it to) and hit return.
  • Your action will now be completed.     [SUGGEST  A  ARTICLE]
