Just like Safari, Finder’s menus have a few secret options buried under the Option key. Open any of the following menus: File, Edit, View, Window, or Go, and then hold down the Option key to see them all. For example, the Edit menu shows you an option to copy the pathname of the selected file and the Go menu reveals the hidden Library option.
Finder and Safari aren’t the only apps that have these hidden menus. Open any app you like and try holding the Option key when opening various menus. Who knows, you may just find some particularly useful hidden features here, as we did with apps like Ulysses.
