OS X Finder default window size

I don’t like to resize the Finder window every time I open the new one. Unfortunately, most of the time the size is too small and I have to change it again and again. Yes, I can go to fullscreen mode, but it’s not always the desired option.

The solution for this problem is simple, but not evident:

  • Open a Finder window and set it the size you want
  • Close all windows (Command + Options + W and click the close button)
  • Hold down the Option key, right-click the Finder icon, and select relaunch

Now, when I open the new Finder window it has always the same size.


Apple keyboard symbols in the text

When writing a post related to the OS X sometime is necessary to include the special keyboard symbols in the text. You can do it by using the special HTML codes:

  • Command ⌘  ⌘
  • Option ⌥  ⌥
  • Shift ⇧  ⇧
  • Caps Lock ⇪  ⇪
  • Backspace ⌫  ⌫
  • Eject ⏏  ⏏

The following key combination ⇧ – ⌃ – ⏏ puts all displays to sleep.
