What is Hidden Finder Features?

This control panel performs the exactly same the same function as the "Secret Finder Features" extension , except that it is user-configurable.

This control panel does not install any (conflict-inducing) patches or INITs, it simply enables features that were already in the Finder.

Beginning with Finder 7.5.4/System 7.5.2. and up, Apple added a couple of features to the Finder, but did not enable them, apparantly for want of testing. They are:

  • Control-Drag an item to make an alias to it
  • Command-R to Reveal the original item of an alias
  • Command-Delete Moves selection to the Trash
  • Enable/Disable the zoom rectangles when opening/closing windows and gridding
