Adding Default Folder X’s buttons to Path Finder’s toolbar

Default Folder X can automatically add buttons to the toolbar in all Finder windows so that you can quickly get to its menus or drawer. I’ve had a number of inquiries from folks that use Path Finder as a replacement for the Finder, and they want those same buttons in their Path Finder toolbars.

Unfortunately, Default Folder X can’t automate this, so you’ll need to add the buttons manually. Here’s how to do it in Path Finder 9:

  • Locate the Default Folder X application in your Applications folder and Control-click on it. Choose “Show Package Contents” from the menu.
  • When the window shows the contents of the Default Folder X application, double-click on the Contents folder, and then within that double-click on the Resources folder.
  • Control-click on Path Finder’s toolbar and choose “Add Custom Items…”
  • Use Default Folder X’s Finder-click feature to go to the Resources folder you just opened in the second step.
  • Choose the “DFX” application to add to Path Finder’s toolbar.
  • Repeat the “Add Custom Items…” command and add the “DFX Drawer” application as well.
