  • Done with Pathfinder
    TotalFinder is back. You need to disable SIP, but if you know what you are doing on your mac and don't open/download shady stuff, it should be fine. Source: 2 months ago
  • What is the best alternative to the Guake terminal in macOS with the most closed-in look and functionality?
    And just since visor mode was mentioned as a requirement, I'd like to mention that I also run TotalFinder which—among many other things—extends Finder into running in visor mode as well. Source: 3 months ago
  • lol - what?
    Back in 2010 I upgrade from a MDD tower Powermac to a Mac Mini (CD tray) and I was so amazed that never bought another Mac tower again. I use CCC to clone my drive to the mini and so on.

  • Looking for Path Finder alternatives after they went to $30/yr subscription
    TotalFinder is another good enhancement. It works on 12.0 Intel Macs, but no current M1 support. They originally weren't going to even try to support it, but they decided against that finally and have been working on updates for both TotalFinder and TotalSpaces. Source: over 1 year ago

    If you're not on 12.0 or on an M1, I'd give TotalFinder[1] a shot. I've been using it for years and among other great Finder add-ons, it enables the same dual mode[2] layout as ForkLift. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Alternatives to Finder for navigating files?
    I have been struggling lately with trying to wean myself off using TotalFinder. I've used that app for over a decade and it truly is the best for my needs. The problem I have is that it requires you to turn off SIP on your machine, which is less than ideal, and for M1 machines can't run it period.
