XtraFinder icon Lightweight and practical macOS application that provides numerous extra features to your Mac's Finder and enriched context menus

XtraFinder is a feature rich Finder plug-in specially designed to improve your Mac’s Finder and provide a long list of additions to macOS' default file browser.

Improved Finder appearance and functionality

XtraFinder modifies your Finder’s interface by adding dual-pane and dual window support, an enhanced context menu and the option to change the appearance of the Finder window.

Consequently, XtraFinder allows you to change the background, text and secondary text color according to your preferences, display colorful icons in the Sidebar, return to the legacy color painting and show label in the Sidebar.

Moreover, with the help of XtraFinder, macOS will also allow you to effortlessly CUT items in the Finder using the "⌘ + X" hot-key, a much simpler way of moving files and folders from one place to another than the alternative offered by Apple's operating system which allows you to copy the items using "⌘ + C" and move them with "⌘ + ⌥ + V".

Smooth-running features

Before enjoying the wide variety of functions and changes that XtraFinder can bring to your standard Finder, you first have to manually enable the desired options via the Preferences window.

Since the latest version of macOS already provide a tab function for your Finder, we can move directly to the dual pane / dual window feature.

Unfortunately, if you have a Mac running 10.9 or later you will not be able to take advantage of the dual pane feature. All you can do with XtraFinder is to open two different Finder windows horizontally or vertically.

This could be consider a major drawback by most Mac users that used XtraFinder for its dual pane capabilities offered for older macOS versions.

Enriched context menu

On the bright side, XtraFinder still comes with a comprehensive context menu that allows you to view the content of folders, copy the file path and perform other useful tasks.

Fortunately, XtraFinder’s improvements do not stop at the context menu. You can enable XtraFinder to maximize the window when zooming, arrange items by name in icons view, hide dot files on Desktop, automatically adjust the width of the Name column and more.
