    I love the new stacks in snow leopard but sometimes I find myself wanting to space bar to preview etc and I can't so I want to quickly launch the finder into that folder. Is there a way? ie a hotkey and a click etc.

    Thanks

    "Open in Finder"?

    It's an "arrow" icon in the stack.

    If I understand your question, you want to be able to use the space bar to preview items in a stacks folder. If that's the case, when you click on the stack, one of the items is:
    Picture 1.jpg
    Click that, then highlight what you want to preview and press the space bar.

    Stacks need Quicklook like a fish needs water.

    Command-click on the icon in the Dock to open its containing folder in the Finder. Works for apps, folders, stacks, anything. You can even command-click on an item *in* a stack to open its containing folder in the Finder.

    I was going to respond to your question but I didn't know if you were serious or not...

    I have been there: when the answer is literally staring you in the face.

    How is Command-click faster? What do you Command-click?
    This doesn't work with the Downloads folder. If I Command-click the Downloads folder on the Dock, I Get this:
    P1.jpg
    If I just click on the Downloads folder I get this:
    P2.jpg
    And by clicking this:
    P3.jpg
    I get this:
    P4.jpg
