Quick Mac Tip - Create Alies for System Preferences
Do you use a specific system preference all the time and keep having to open system preferences and navigate to it and wish there was a fast way. Well there is. You can create an alies or shortcut ,is it's known in the Windows world, to your often used system preferences.
All you have to do is navigate from your computer's root directory System>>Library>>PreferencePlanes. Then all you have to do is hold down Command+Option while dragging your desired preference plane icon. You can then place this alies anywhere giving you the ability launch specific preference planes without having to open the main system preferences menu.
Confused? See Lifehackers video on how to do this.
Another quick tip concerning system preferences is after you have opened system preferences once you can right click the icon on the dock and be presented with the contextual menu that now has a shortcut to all the options in system preferences. I discovered this a while ago and comes in handy now and again.
