Quit the Finder (not force quit)!

I didn't even know this was possible until I found the feature in OnyX (OS X maintenance & optimization application). You can enable an additional "Quit Finder" menu item in the Finder menu. It is totally different than the "Force Quit Finder" feature that will quit the Finder and relaunch it immediately. This will actually quit the Finder ant it won't relaunch until you load it by clicking on the icon in the Dock. It looks pretty great because the icons on the desktop are not displayed and the Finder doesn't take up any resources. Here is where you can add this feature in OnyX:

1. Go to the "Parameters" tab and click on the "Finder" tab.
2. Check the checkbox next to "Show Quit item" under "Finder Menu:".

You can download OnyX here from MacUpdate.

Don't forget to update your bookmarks, download the new widget and check out the new website at Tips will soon only be posted on the new website.

Why would I want to do that? Isn't having the finder operating pretty important? Just curious, other than having the desktop icons out of sight, is there any advantage to quitting the finder?

There is a reason why I bought a Mac, it was not to be one of the cool kids that wanted the best of the best. No it was because of the music production I do on it. Hours and hours sitting in front of my Mac copying, pasting, moving, deleting, hour after hour just beating on my Mac in a endless assault to get my work done. That is the key part, my work. I work from home, it is great, but even if it is from home it is still work and it still needs to get done. So my Mac, I have it because it is fast, gets the job done and comes back for more.
But what happens when it doesn't want to do those things anymore?
I move around massive amounts of information and yes even on the almighty Mac this can cause a problem after a while. Things fragment, programs get corrupted issues come up. My light speed Mac slows down to a crawl and all of the sudden I simply can not get any work done. Because I work from home there is no IT guy to call and ask to come fix it. No instead I have to figure out what is wrong. I am lucky, I did, but not after trying everything under the sun first and wasting countless hours looking for one program that can do what I needed instead of ten programs. One program to lead them all….okay that was a lame Lord of the rings reference, but that program was/is Detox My Mac. A simple to use program that did not just fix my issues, it put my Mac on overdrive again. A few clicks and my Mac was clean and ready to rock and roll again.
