They say that necessity is the mother of invention. We call the Mac’s Desktop because we need a metaphorical crutch so we’ll know what to do with the Desktop. That’s where we put files and folders before we put them somewhere else.
There’s a Mac app that adds speed dial to files and folders. It’s called Dammit. Why? Because we probably curse a bit when we lose or can’t find an important file or folder.
Dammit is a simple app that finds what you’re looking for because you can assign speed dial-like buttons to import files and folders.
Start by creating a stack of up to nine files or folders. Then, assign a key, from number 1 to 9. Click the number and those files or folders open.
Dammit doesn’t really care much about what you assign to the speed dial-like button. Files, folders, photos, apps, bookmarks, an external disk drive.
The app resides in the background, or the Dock, and can be started by using a custom hotkey combo.
The idea here is that you’ll stop swearing and cursing when you can’t find a file, and limit your foul language to a simple, “Dammit, where’s that folder?” but referring only to the app Dammit.
The question we need to ask, of course, is, “Do we really need another way to find files and folders?” Why not? Whatever floats your boat or gets you to the end of the day.
