Leopard introduced a number of changes to the Finder, some of which you’ve already heard about and others that haven’t been publicized that much. In this installment of the Macworld Video, I cover some of the new things the OS X 10.5 Finder is capable of doing. Specifically, I talk about opening Get Info windows in unexpected places, previewing fonts, easing access to networked Macs, finding the source of mysterious login windows, and more.

For a summary of the major changes in Leopard’s Finder and Dock, please review my Inside Leopard summary from the January 2008 issue of Macworld.

Of course, the Finder has been a frequent source of material for my Mac OS X Hints blog. Recent topics have included viewing iCal events in the Finder’s new Cover Flow view mode and using keyboard shortcuts for Quick Look.
