FinderPop is a Universal preference pane that extends OS X's contextual menus using a FinderPop Items folder much as the Apple Menu Items folder used to do for the Apple menu.

It has other features too:

  • Control-free popup in the Finder - handy for those with one-button mice.
  • A launcher that takes up zero screen real estate, merely a click on any blank area of menubar away,
  • A handy filesystem browser, allowing quick and easy access to files and disks in the Finder,
  • A Processes menu (Command-click a blank menubar area.)
  • Fast access to 'Where's that dratted file I had on the more...

What's New

Version 2.5.6:
  • Fix minor bug in finderpop-daemon.
  • Add 'Move To...' and 'Copy To...' scripts to the 'FinderPop Extras' folder. These will only be visible in FP menus if you have a Finder selection and allow you to choose a destination folder into which to move or copy the items. NB: These use low-level Unix 'mv' and 'cp' commands to do the heavy lifting, and any similarly-named existing items more...

Requirements

OS X 10.4 or later

A must-have addition to any power-user's Mac. I wouldn't want to be without it.

Get it. Use it. Donate. It's really that simple.

This baby is integral to my Mac experience and essential to my workflow.

I'd forgotten how much I use Finder Pop until I turned it off to upgrade... suddenly I realised my Mac "didn't work" anymore. All those handy contextual menu extras were gone. What the...?

I'd become so used to the seamless way that Finder Pop integrates with Mac OS, that I was taking it for granted. Not any more. Pints of Beamish will be winging their way towards you Señor Turly. Many thanks.

It would be perfect if it worked with Chrome(ium). This is not due to developer, though.

Look what Turly replied on 08 Jun 2014
Chrome have ignored my request to whitelist FinderPop (trying to talk to a real person in google is impossible) so in the end I took matters into my own hands:

Note: this is extremely naughty but has been working fine for me for months.

I've sent Turly many pints over the many years that we've used FinderPop. We hope you folks will do the same. This prefpane should be an integral part of the Mac OS but is not. Thank you very much Turly, you have been a true benefactor to the Mac community!

With Sincere Appreciation,
Russell

This product should get some kind of an award for being one of the best additions to Mac OS ever created along with ease of use, stability, good user support, and longevity.

It is simply a must have for any Mac user. If you haven't tried it yet you have no idea what you are missing and how it can improve your productivity and reduce navigation frustration.

Turly labels them "béta" until no other bug is found, then "removes the BETA designation, when he thinks it's good to go", as mentioned there: http://is.gd/jChW6N ;-)

This is absolutely one of my favorite Mac utilities EVER... when it works. It seems that every installation I've done with the next new version of FinderPop, it works for a while, and then completely stops working. There seems to be nothing I can do to get it working again. To be fair, I do not know if this is a problem solely with FinderPop, or if another utility is somehow interfering. But I love FinderPop so much that I'm going to install it again! :-)

On occasion I, too, find that FinderPop (FP) stops working in the sense that FP no longer shows the FP Items folder items, or only the first level.

I don't know why this happens, but it's easily resolved by going to the System Prefs, turning FP off, closing System Prefs, opening it again and turning FP back on.

In my experience, doing this brings back the FP alias folders.
