Icon DragThing 5.9.17

DragThing is the original dock designed to tidy up your Macintosh desktop.
The main purpose of DragThing is to make items on your Mac such as files, folders, applications, disks, URLs, clippings, and even windows, quickly and easily accessible, while taking up as little space on your screen as possible.
The main elements with which DragThing enables this speedy access are its docks. DragThing's docks, unlike the Mac OS X system dock, are highly configurable and you can have multiple docks, customised to suit your specific circumstances.
DragThing also allows you to define a huge variety of hot keys. These hot keys can open items in docks, control various other aspects of DragThing and even control the visibility of and switching between other applications running on your Mac.
DragThing can also provide you with a Trash on your desktop, play sounds in response to actions like ejecting a CD, and a lot more besides.

Icon FinderPop 2.5.7

Ensure you use the Apple unzipper to unzip the downloaded FinderPop zip file. Then, if the System Preferences application is running, please quit it. Strange things can happen otherwise. Double-click the FinderPop.prefpane icon you downloaded. System Preferences will open and ask if you want to install FinderPop for all users or just you. If you are using 10.7 or later, or are using FileVault, you should choose 'All Users'. Otherwise you can choose either option, and the System will install the FinderPop Preference Pane. FinderPop may ask you for the admin password in order to set certain permissions on some FinderPop files. This is only done once at installation time. If you had an older version of FinderPop already installed, you will have to logout to begin using the new version.

After installation, open the FinderPop Preferences Pane. Click on the "Items" tab, then on the "Show FinderPop Items" button. You'll be switched to the Finder with a folder called "FinderPop Items" showing. Add aliases to your favourite apps/folders/disks/documents to this "FinderPop Items" folder. Next time you control-click, the items you added will be part of your contextual menu!

Additionally, click a blank portion of the menubar anytime to have instant access to these items and more. While browsing FinderPop menus, pressing Command-Option will display a "Get Info" help tag, pressing Cmd-Opt-Control will allow you to move the selected item to the trash, and pressing Command while selecting an item will reveal that item in the Finder. Also, pressing 'i' will immediately show the Finder Info window for the item, 'r' will immediately reveal the item, 'q' will QuickLook it (Leopard only), 'g' will "grab" or "pick up" the item and allow you to drag it around (as with all Mac drags, dragging to the menubar and letting go aborts the drag.) Pressing Tab will bring up a "FinderPop Info" window on the item.

Other features: Command-control-click a folder to get a Contents popup menu. Shift-click an unused portion of the menubar to see a Desktop menu with your mounted disks and items on your desktop. Command-click an unused portion of the menubar to see a Processes menu. If Control is down as well, background-only processes will also be shown in the Processes menu. Press Command-Option-Control to kill a process.

Icon LaunchControl 1.38.1

LaunchControl is a fully-featured launchd GUI allowing you to create, manage and debug system- and user services on your Mac.

See the big picture…
With LaunchControl you see all services and their respective status at a glance. Invalid services are highlighted and a problem description is provided. You can enable or disable services with a single click. The same goes for loading, unloading and ad-hoc starting. A long list of jobs may be filtered by job name and/or various properties, helping you to find what you are looking for in an instant. …and the details But LaunchControl is not just another .plist editor. It provides a dedicated interface for every single launchd configuration key. The interface is adaptive. It displays only information that is relevant for the selected job.

Say good bye to launchctl
Don't waste time trying to figure out why a job does not behave as expected. LaunchControl performs exhaustive analysis of your job and chances are that it will find the problem in an instant and tell you how to fix it. It provides most of the functionality of the launchctl command line utility, everything you need to create, edit, remove or debug launch services and even includes a log viewer, so you don't have to fire up Console.app and build custom queries.
