[One of a series regarding Snow Leopard’s new Finder menu commands.]
Snow Leopard has fixed what seemed to some of us a glaring omission in its Go menu—a way to open a window for the Documents folder. Why glaring? Because it’s a folder that gets heavy use—you’re supposed to put all your docs in it, for heaven’s sake!—and because all the other items you can turn on for the sidebar in Finder Preferences have keyboard commands assigned to them.
Of course, Command-Shift-D is already taken by the Go to Desktop option, so, according to a venerable convention of Mac keyboard-command assignments, the second letter of Documents is used for this: Command-Shift-O.
