Editors' review

For many Mac users, the Finder provides plenty of functionality. But if you're looking for more powerful control over your files and desktop, Path Finder can be an attractive alternative. This standalone file browser complements and improves on the Finder, with scores of useful integrated features.

The program lets you quickly access favorites; view the contents of almost any file in a preview drawer; and move files more easily using the Shelf and Drop Stack. Other features include the capability to compress and decompress files; mount disk images; view invisible files, securely delete files, and work from the command line. You can even put a Trash back on your desktop (and out of the Dock). This latest version is only for Mac OS X 10.6 or later, but adds several important new features.

If you want a little more control over files and folders, a better way to transfer files, and many other features, Path Finder is great utility for those using Mac OS X Snow Leopard or later.

    "New Version Doesn't Work on MacBook Air"

    December 12, 2013   |   By brianprice6

    Version: Path Finder 6.4.5

    Pros

    If I could get it to work I might be able to publish something positive about the product....

    Cons

    This had difficult installing, then would not work once installed. i checked out their tech support and there appears to be an issue with this product installing correctly on some MacBook Air machines. The developers have not been able to resolve this over the month or so they've known about it....so may not be the best time to be trying to trail this software.

    Summary

    Try to install - if it doesn't work uninstall and wait a few months until they get this problem resolved. No sense wasting your time on someone else's problem.....meanwhile I will look for a product that actually works on my machine.
