Finder Pop
Control Panel which improves and extends the Mac OS 8 Finder's Contextual Menus. It now makes it unnecessary to hit the control key to bring up the contextual menu. It adds various submenus to the Finder's contextual menus, including a Processes submenu, a Finder Windows submenu, a Contents submenu (allowing you to see the contents of a folder you've selected in the Finder), and of course the eponymous FinderPop submenu, which displays everything inside a special "FinderPop Items folder" (much like the Apple Menu displays everything inside the "Apple Menu Items" folder.) You can put aliases to apps, servers, folders, documents, etc., into the "FinderPop Items Folder", and they're instantly available for the price of a control-click in the Finder! (PPC only, and MacOS 8) (pintware). Go to the homepage for localized versions.

It should be quite intuitive, mostly drag and drop. For the folders, you should paste different icons for better navigation (although the name of the folder is also included). The text section is for you to copy your frequently used text (although clippings don't seem to work in this release). Please increase the memory allocation.
