Editors' Review

With Finder options typically located in several different menus, XtraFinder for Mac combines them all together for easier access. This free program could use some design help but would be beneficial for those who have to constantly switch between menus and programs in the Finder window.

After installing into the applications folder, XtraFinder for Mac automatically restarts the Finder window to apply any changes. Double clicking the program icon brings up its main menu, which lacks any graphics and has a cluttered look. The first menu contains options for tabs, windows, and shortcut keys. Users can also change the tab styles based on the appearance of other programs, like Google Chrome. The shortcuts can control tab options, including opening new ones and moving between previous menus. The features pane allows changes to things such as colors and text scheme, as well as toolbar changes. While the number of available modifications is impressive, few of them are easy to figure out based solely on the menu descriptions. Better labels or a user guide would have been a helpful addition. Fortunately, it was easy to turn options on and off, and the changes incorporated flawlessly into the Finder.

Despite its messy interface and lack of direction, XtraFinder brings some useful Mac modifications to the table. It's worth a download if you're willing to put up with some trial and error to get results.

"Does not work on El Capitan 10.11 :("

October 10, 2015

2015-10-10 09:40:31

 |  Version: XtraFinder 0.25.5

Pros

Have been using the Xtra Finder on my Mac since 10.10.1 and it has always worked like a charm.

Cons

Since upgrading to 10.11 the Xtra Finder is not working and is not even visible in the menu bar as where it was housed earlier. Have tried uninstalling and re-downloading the entire thing but it still does not seem to work. Moreover it cause stalling of other functions.

Summary

Please suggest what to do. Really miss the cut and paste function at the moment.
