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.
