Tuesday tip: Shortcuts to XMenu’s Custom folder

XMenu Shortcuts

XMenu’s user-defined menu allows you to build you very own menu extra menu. You just have to add your own documents, apps, or scripts to its Custom folder. In XMenu’s Preferences first check the User-Defined option to make the menu appear. Right-click this menu, which appears with a gear icon, to quickly show its folder. It is always named Custom. Add and remove files to or from this folder to customize the menu’s content to your needs.

Sometimes, however, you may want to add or remove items even more quickly. Here are three easy ways to add to this folder:

  1. Drag and drop the Custom folder to the right of the divider in your dock.
  2. Drag and drop the Custom folder to the sidebar in a Finder window.
  3. Open a new Finder window and right-click the toolbar. Choose Customize Toolbar and drag the Custom folder from the first window to the toolbar in this new window.

Now you can drag files to any one of these locations you have set up. Note for some items you’ll want to leave them in place. Hold Command and Option when you drag to create an alias to the item in its current location. If you don’t the item will be moved into the Custom folder. To remove items, you can click on the shortcut to immediately switch to the Custom folder to clean things out.
