    In Tiger I had placed a link to my hard drive on my dock, So i could get rid of everything on my desktop, but now that I installed Leopard it converted that link to my HD to a stack...which I don't like as well. I liked just being able to click on it to launch a finder window...Is there any way anyone has found to get just the link back?
    Also does anyone know how to force a stack to just show the folder representation instead of the files inside it? Or are these just things Apple is needing to fix in this 10.5.0 release?:apple:

    Can you not just click the Finder icon? If you want it to open up showing the contents of the HD rather than your home folder, in Finder, go to Finder > Preferences > New Finder windows open: and select your HD.

    As for your other questions, sorry, I can't help.

    Problem solved

    Yeah, exactly, that is the way to do it. that'll be almost exactly the sam for you except the link will be on the other side of the dock. That's what I do. Also, take a look at quicksilver for all your quick-launching needs

    thanks guys...i never was quite sure why finder was in the dock...now that makes sense. it was already set up, i just didnt know clicking on it opened a new finder window. rock on..

    as far as quicksilver goes, I find spotlight is so fast in Leopard, that i don't need quicksilver, thanks anyway though.

    THANKS GUYS!:apple:

    a closer look at quicksilver can be very rewarding...
    it is way more than just a app. launcher and a search tool.
    it has a very cool clipboard manager that I use constantly has many useful plugins also.
    you will have to read some material like howtos and tutorials though to take full advantage of QS.
    however, it is very rewarding in the end.

    I looked into quicksilver...and it does seem pretty nice, I think I will try it for a while and see how i like it. I installed the mail addon, so i can quickly e-mail any file, that sounds pretty sweet. anyway. i will be trying it for the next few weeks or so:apple:
