Spring-loading a folder!

The spring-loading happens when you drag an icon over a folder and hover over the folder until it loads in a new window. Instead of waiting a few seconds for the folder to open, you can hit "Space bar" to load it instantly. If the folder is loaded in a new window and you decide you don't want to copy the file or the folder in there, you can simply hit "Esc" to close the spring-loaded folder.

Like the tip but don't understand what is meant by "drag an icon over a folder and hover over the folder until it loads in a new window" Can you give an example of what "icon" you would drag over a folder.

Wow, this is great. I had accidently found out about spring-loading but the wait was annoying. I was just playing with the feature and noticed that if I oen a spring-load folder and then realize it isn't the correct one, hitting ESC cancels the entire process. I then have to start over. However, if I just move the cursor/icon back to the previous spring loaded folder/window, the previous spring-loaded folder/window disappears and I can choose a new folder. Works for as many folders "backwards" as you need.
