Super Get Info is a much improved version of the Finder Get Info command. Two features make Super Get Info stand out, the ability to view hidden files and change Type and Creator codes. Without resorting to the Terminal you can find and make visible hidden files on your machine or make files invisible to hide them from the casual user. The Type and Creator codes are used less is OS X, but the drag and drop interface of Super Get Info makes it a breeze to change the codes using favorites or finding a document with the correct codes and simply dropping the icon onto Super Get Info's window. It is just as easy to create favorite codes that can be selected from a pop-up menu.
If you ever wondered exactly what files are on your computer, or want a much improved Get Info interface, Super Get Info is the program for you.
