Open Sub Folders Within Finder With One Click

Hey,

Todays post is a quick tip on opening sub folders all at once within Finder. If you are a new user to the Mac (I recommend this book if you are) you may be interested to know that you can open all of the sub folders of a folder by Option and Clicking on the folder arrow. For example if you have your documents folder and want to view all of the subfolders and files at once you can. This is a really efficient way to view every sub folder and a great way to move files between them.

To get access to this awesome little tip. Hold down the option key (the key between control and command). When you hold this key down and press the little triangle next to the folder it will open the folder, and the subfolder, and there subfolders and so on. It will also display the files within them.

Step One. Open Finder and select the folder.
