Ways to Speed up your Finder

One of the most often use app – Finder and yet it is kind of sluggish after using some time.

1. Disable standard Finder animations.

defaults write com.apple.finder DisableAllAnimations -bool true

2. Disable ‘snap to grid’.

defaults Write com.apple.Finder AnimateSnapToGrid -bool FALSE

3. Disable Info pane animations

defaults write com.apple.finder AnimateInfoPanes -bool false

4. Disable slow-mo animations (seen when you press Shift during Exposé launches or window minimization)

defaults write com.apple.finder FXEnableSlowAnimation -bool true

Issue any or all of these at the command line, and then restart Finder.

killall “Finder”
