FinderPop for Mac2.5.7

28 September 2014

Adds enhanced contextual menu features to folders in OS X.

What is FinderPop for Mac

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 Desktop?' (Shift-Click a blank menubar area.)
  • A comprehensive collection of vaguely beer-related aphorisms in the Aboutbox.

Please use the FinderPop Help button in the preference pane; there are many features in FP that are not immediately obvious. I'm working on it :-) The FAQ in the Help is also worth a read. Most UI elements have fairly comprehensive help tags, so just hover the mouse over something if you're not sure. The manual is also available online. Also note the FinderPop Support Forum

What's new in FinderPop

Version 2.5.7:
  • Allow FP to work with alias files produced by the Yosemite Finder.
  • In FinderPop's "Move/Copy/Alias" dialog, you can control-click the "Alias" button and FinderPop will create symlinks instead of aliases.
  • Fix minor bug in the "Move To..." and "Copy To..." scripts introduced last time (in the 'FinderPop Extras' folder.)
  • Add new "Alias To..." and "Symlink To..." scripts.
  • Fix a buffer overrun bug which could cause a crash in rare instances.

Works under High Sierra by disabling SIP (restart in Recovery mode, fire up Terminal, type 'csrutil disable' (without the ') and reboot. It's a 5-star app, highly customisable, highly recommended. Long-time user. I have set up folders with symbolic links to most-frequently used files, external volumers, core services etc - all available at anytime by the press of trackpad. Feature set/options unique and best in class. Recommended without qualifications.

There's a v2.5.9beta available here: http://www.finderpop.com/fnarr/fp/t_348.html (with some workarounds to make it work in recent OSes) Unfortunately, Turly is retiring after 20 years of finderpopping: http://www.finderpop.com/fnarr/fp/ As he says, the Mac as we used to know it is slowly vanishing in the haze of an iOS like os, and utilities like FP or DragThing, etc. are not keen to attract new users. Thanks, Turly, for all those years!

I noticed that another SIP-centric app (Bartender) was able to disable SIP, install the app and then reenable SIP, and have it work. (It has since been upgraded to v.2 so it isn't necessary anymore) Seriously thinking about disabling SIP, because I miss FP. Has anyone tried this method?

The current version is 2.5.7. The Developer's website says: "FinderPop will NOT work on OS X 10.11 El Capitan unless System Integrity Protection (aka "Rootless Mode") is disabled. For normal users, I would not recommend disabling SIP, though it is possible to disable it and get FinderPop to (mostly) work."

We should send Turly(?) more pint money so he gets drunk enough to decide to update FinderPop to work with 10.11 without disabling SIP. The dev for Default Folder X said it is no easy feat to make it work with 10.11 with SIP enabled, and given both of these devs have been writing for Mac OS and OS X since the 90s, I believe them. Also, I gotta mention this was one of the first things I installed on my new macs for at least a decade+ (same with DFX—since the 90s for both). Power Users need/want these sort of productivity boosters. I wish they had the resources to make these transitions easy, and I wish Apple would reach out to help them given the long track record of value they’ve added to the platform.

The latest version (2.5.7) of this product is NOT compatible with OS X 10.11 and later. When you click on the FinderPop System Preference, it throws up a message stating that it is not compatible. At this point, even though there is an "OK" button, you cannot dismiss the dialog box and System Preferences must be force quit.

This is a no-brainer, must-have, no question about it utility for Mac. Been using it since the earliest versions (System 8 I believe). Apple's El CRAPITAN has killed so many of my GUI tweaks (Flavours, ASM, cDock, Finderpop, FolderGlance etc) that the simple choice is between SIP/system lockdown/vanilla GUI designed for 8 year olds or full-blown customization. Easy, disabled rootless and starting to rebuild MY computer and MY software and MY gui etc as I want it, not Tim!!

Please don't stop development just because Apple is really stupid. The first thing I did was disable SIP even before I got to testing FP, because none of my other system modifications that I have made myself worked. Apple has gone overboard for a platform that doesn't even have any viruses. If it ever gets to the point of not being able to customize our own computers, then there will be no point in having a Mac anymore.

This is one of those "can't live without" utilities, and it should be working. The beta for El Capitan has been public for a very long time. I wonder what the lag is. I know a lot of us can't afford the developer tools, that's what's killing a lot of stuff on the Mac. Apple is really stupid in this matter. Why would anyone pay thousands of dollars so they can make free and donation-ware? With that said, El Capitan has been out for months on torrents. Apple really needs to do something to help the little guy.

Turly has been updating this for many years and it's still as vital as it was ages ago before even OS X existed. I still use it to click-n-hold to pop up a hierarchical list of folder contents in the Finder and explore sub-folders instead of mindlessly clicking folder after folder in the Finder. Saves a tremendous amount of time as it has many advantages in speed and functionality. While this app is free like it's always been, I would suggest sending a donation to Turly for his beer, for thanks and to promote further development in the future.

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.

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! :-)

Hi Turly! As a long time user, I'm sorry to say that the "move" function (when you click on a folder in the FinderPop Elements) is not working on my 10.5.8 PPC, it's just copying the item, not moving it. As I've just discovered this function (shame on me! ;-), I can't say if it was working in previous versions...

I have used FP for many years, even prior to OS X. Always useful. But with this update, ML will not allow it to launch because “it is not in MAS or not an approved vender.” If it actually worked like it had up through 10.7, then this would get a five star rating. Until this is resolved, can’t even rate it.

After installing this PrefPane, all Microsoft Office 2011 applications crash when opening a file, say a PPT presentation or an Excel spreadsheet!! I experienced this on Mac OSX 10.5.8. After removing the prefpane, Office 2011 returned working ok.

I had FinderPop on all my macs back in the OS 8/9 days, and It was so great I sent Turly enough money for a few pints as thanks. He sent me a kind thank you and the rest is history. When OS X came out I missed FinderPop, but Turly (a former Apple Developer from what I remember) came back and enhanced an already enhanced contextual menu system. Thanks again Turly... I think I owe you a few more pints. :)

Thank you Turly for "Finder Pop": A great tool since the days of MacOS 8/9 - indispensable until today and so at last I.O.U. some of your favourite liquid gold. A virtual equivalent for a pint or two is on the way…

i've been using FinderPop ever since MacOS 8; it's an amazingly useful addition to the Mac OS. The developer is incredibly responsive, considering the fact that FinderPop is free! I urge everyone to donate! Be Well!

The only piece of donationware that I _never_ fail to donate to! And more than once once, at that. I've been a big fan of this app since its beginning. Not to mention that, Turlough, its author, is a major dude!;-) That complete rewrite that you mentioned, Turlough? Go for it!

I just rediscovered FinderPop after using it for years prior to OS X. I think FinderPop was the first ever shareware/freeware title I donated money to. Was sad to see it go after OS X came out. I didn't even know this was back on OS X after all this time. Thanks to MacUpdate! I am glad to be using FinderPop on my Macs once again. I love being able to right click to access my volumes, apps, and documents with ease, among other things.

I used this so much in OS 9 and earlier. Was sad when it was not available for OS X for SOOOO LONG!! Had to figure so many other work arounds. I was thrilled when it finally showed up for OS X!!!! Took me a while to re-integrate myself as I picked up so many poor habits without it. Now I'm so glad I returned to better habits with FinderPop. A couple of small problems exist. 1. finder label colours do not show up consistently in the menus and sub-menus when clicking on Menu bar. Label colours do not show up at all when clicking on finder items directly. 2. some utils complain about it: Drive Genius 3.x, BTT (BetterTouchTool) used for Magic Mouse and Touch Pad 3. Would be nice if it worked with SecondBar or the like. I'm on 27" iMac 2.93Ghz i7 Quad with OS X.6.7

I used Finderpop on my 1999 iMac (MacOS) 8 a loooong time ago. But since I got back to Apple (after getting abused by the dark side of the Force) in 2006, I completely forgot about it. I'll give it a try. The review below is for the Classic version.

I have little difficulty finding files or applications, but if Spotlight (or my memory) fails, FinderPop is an quietly flashy pref pane that allows you to access the software. With FP, you can quickly find errant files - in the context of your running computer - giving you yet another tool to find the files you need.

Has anyone else got this working on 10.6.5? It is "On" in the Preference Pane, but it does not work. No sign of it in any contextual menus. The FP-Injector is running in my process list.

Awesome! I have been looking for a QuickAccess replacement - which broke with the release of Snow Leopard - for quite a while. I have used a "Move to" apple script, but that wasn't very snappy, the pop up screen (where you have to choose the destination folder) always takes a long time to show up. FinderPop is great in that it gives all three options, move, copy and make alias in one pop up. Just make aliases of the most used folders and put them in the Finderpop items folder. It is fast and so far I haven't encountered any bugs or slowing down. One (small) thing I don't care much about is that it will show the content of the (aliased) folders, for me the move and copy option would be enough.

For those of you who love to tweak things like the finder, the latest version of TotalFinder, (0.9.3) now seems to work perfectly with FinderPop.

Dump MSN! Keep FinderPop! FP is independenly designed for the Mac by a Mac user. MSN is by Microsoft to Microsoft standards by a company that would dump all things Apple, if it could.

As soon as I installed this, my MSN Messenger Version 8.0.0 (100326) started crashing and would not run at all. I rebooted my Mac and MSN messenger still wouldn't work. I removed FinderPop and rebooted my Mac. After that my MSN started working again. Has anyone else seen this issue ? I am running OS 10.5.8 on a Intel Core Duo Macmini 1.66 Ghz.

Thanks Turly for your hard work on the latest version. I have been using that most useful piece of software since... hum... since... O.K... since... well, I don't even remember. Snow Leopard remained in its box until a FP beta came out, but now my machines are happy again. Beers are on the way, and all the best to you and your shoulder.

I recently fell back in love with Finder Pop. Back in the dark days of "Classic" this was simply a must have. Because honestly you stood less chance of crashing and restarting the entire computer by moving files around with a contextual menu than an actual Finder copy. When OS X came out I relied heavily on Pathfinder for many functions. However, Pathfinder has just gotten to be a big pain in the butt. To bloated, too slow, and generally to cumbersome. Well the God's have been listening and have brought FinderPop for OS X back. If you haven't ever used it, try it. It's deceptively simple appearing for a massive amount of functionality.

Wow, it's back! I'm SO happy to have FinderPop back on my Mac. Massive thanks for that Turly. I'll slip you a few bob for a bevvy when I can... I've always missed the Apple Menu. After its demise, I long used Unsanity's FruitMenu and when that died under Snow Leopard, have been using XMenu. Until now that is. FinderPop is the best thing to happen to my Mac in ages. All I need now is by beloved WindowShade to be updated for SL and I'll once again be truly productive. Mind you, the way Unsanity's shaping up, I'm not holding my breath... Hey Turley, you're the sort of genius who understands what we really need to make our Macs work- so how about knocking out a replacement for WindowShade? You'd make a fortune mate. My money's waiting! What possesses Apple to get rid of oh-so-useful functions such as configurable contexual menus and window shading anyway?

FP has been from years ago one of these wonderful apps that you almost forget how good it is until you can't use it as it has happened with the regrettable accident of Turly. Even so he has continued working on it, so, thank you, Turly. I think you deserves our Pintware contribution (even more being for a good cause ;-)). MdP
