I love Mac OS X's spring-loaded folders that pop open for me when I drag and hold a file over a folder icon, but can I speed up the spring-loaded part?


Open Finder > Preferences > General to fine-tune the spring-loaded-folder delay. You can also make the target folder spring open immediately by pressing the spacebar as soon as your cursor is positioned over the folder.


This slider is your ticket to faster (or slower) times.
