FinderMinder1.2

23 August 2013

Make new windows appear at a specific location and size on the screen.

Overview

FinderMinder allows you to specify where (position) and what size you want newly opened Finder windows to appear. The default Finder behavior is to remember the last position and size for every window, but this can be frustrating if you already know where you want every window to appear (for example, centered at 800x600). FinderMinder must be running for window reposition and resize to take place.

FinderMinder must continue running in the background for window reposition and resize to take place, so click the "Hide" button to dismiss the preferences and keep FinderMinder running. Simply re-launch FinderMinder to access the preferences again or to quit the app.

This application does exactly what it says. Every time I hit "Command N" when the finder is open, I've had to move the window. Now I can have every new window open not only in the exact location, but also at the exact size that I want. There are probably lots of other ways to do this, but this is what I found first. It doesn't get any easier than this.

A tad slow but oh so nice. It should be using compiled AppleScript perhaps? I have been abused by the Finder for many years in this "browser" mode it keeps on forcing on me. The most used keys on my keyboard are command-option-T to change the Finder window back to a regular minimal folder window instead of some insanely counter-intuitive Safari like browser for a file system. And the windows don't stay this way... the randomly default back to the

Fantastic application. Very fast, doesn't slow down your computer, and automatically adjusts all Finder windows to a specified size and position. If you're frustrated by constantly resizing Finder windows when you make a new Folder or mount a Disk Image, this is the app for you! Highly recommended!! ★★★★★
