I tried so hard to get used to it for past 2 months but cannot. What alternatives can you recommend.What in particular do you dislike about it? I suggest giving yourself some time to get used to the different interface. Personally, I find it to be much more intuitive than Explorer.
There are alternatives, but if you can resolve your complaints without buying new software, so much the better.
YIKES!!!! I feel like I just woke up from a nightmare in which I was back on Windows!!!! The horror!!! That's one fugly interface!!! Thank goodness it was just a bad dream!!
I don't understand that process. There's no cut/copy+paste taking place. It's a completely different command (move/copy file) with the same keyboard shortcut.1) No Cut and Paste. I still miss this. If it worked in windows -never had problems with - why cant it work in SL.
And trying to drag files when every folder is open in one window? Eww. Not everything benefits from being unified. I sure do love the tabbed Terminal in Leopard, though.2) No tabbed finder. Ok, windows xp (that was the last WinOS I used) did not have it either but it would be great to have all the folders opened in the same window.
That's neat. I assume you realize that the screenshot is grouping by name, which is bloody useless, but by type could be handy. You can order by type in Finder, though. That's how I have my desktop set up.3) In Xp, you could see files grouped by type. (see image)
In Windows you can rename files with F2.... renaming files by simply hitting the return key
Just drag and drop to move stuff. With spring-loaded folders and a customizable sidebar, it's pretty easy to navigate and move stuff around. I always find cutting and pasting in Windows slow and annoying.Personally I like working with files/dirs in Windows then MAC. Its hard for me to help explain. Its easier to navigate folders and copy and paste from folder to folder. Go from to folder its easier.
Let me explain...I don't understand that process. There's no cut/copy+paste taking place. It's a completely different command (move/copy file) with the same keyboard shortcut.
