FinderPop

Version 2.5.7

Adds enhanced contextual menu features to folders in OS X.

FinderPop overview

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 version 2.5.7

Updated on Sep 28 2014

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.

Just upgraded to El Capitan on 04 Oct. FinderPop would not work. Downloaded the latest version on the same day and that won't work either. Sure hope they fix it.

The first thing I install on any Mac I come across. But having to do without it now as it won't work in El Capitan. All of a sudden, finding files is a right pain. Hurry up and fix it Turly! :)

One of the best auxiliary apps for the Mac. Works great on Yosemite. I just hope it will work on El Capitan with all those new system restrictions.

Turly should get a knighthood if not immediate canonization. FinderPop is as essential as a comfy chair and in a not dissimilar way.

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.

Very good and useful application, indeed. Happily using it for many years. But in Yosemite it seems to have a strange behaviour. Very difficult to trigger. Happens only to me?
