Editors' review

FinderPop is a free preference pane that extends the functionality of OS X's contextual menus, helping you more quickly browse, open, move, preview, and get info on folders, files, volumes, and apps using your mouse, in much the same way that other "launcher" apps increase efficiency with keyboard commands. This popular, venerable application has been around since Mac OS 9, and one of its main purposes is to emulate the old Apple Menu Items folder.

At its most basic, FinderPop lets you browse the contents of a folder or volume just by control-clicking on it, while also giving you quick access to your desktop items, any running processes, and recent apps, files, and folders, all within the standard OS X contextual menu. You can also click on any blank spot in the menu bar to get a one-click contextual menu without having to hold down the control key (useful if you have a one-button mouse), and you can add any favorite items to a "FinderPop Items" folder to have them instantly accessible through any contextual menu. As with many similar interface-enhancing apps, FinderPop has more features than you may ever need, use, or even discover, and it provides extensive options for customization. Thankfully, the app comes with a helpful online manual.

    "Keeps Everything handy-only 1 mouse-click away!!!"

    October 18, 2011   |   By S Mayer

    Version: FinderPop 2.4.1


    Very easy to use and config. Keeps everything you need handy; folders, applications, files, running processes, etc.

    Can pass files to active process, aliased apps, or drill down to any app.

    Can move things with drill down through menus

    Very actively maintained (now that author is using OS X) for "beta" & "between" official release versions, which are still quite stable...but in the forums only.

    Great for those who miss the Apple Menu functionality of Mac OS 9.


    Kudos to this developer for keeping this tool alive!!!


    Small cosmetic quirks...Italics of alias, colour of aliases, some spacing of named entries.

    Some dead spots when trying to click on empty menu bar.


    I've been a long time user from the days of Mac OS 9 . Missed it for a long time when it was absent from OS X. SSSOOOO Glad it is back!

    Would be nice if it also included some Expose features, starting with just listing the open windows for a running process and showing active windows. Then would not need the Dock for much.
