Natural Order: an init (extension) "Natural Order will give you the results you might expect when items are numbered and sorted into a list view. Such as a natural counting order of 1-12 instead of 1, 10, 11, 12, 2 etc. which as the read me states: "looks stupid, and it's because the System is just sorting the names lexicographically."<br><br><br>Desktop Screenshots "Do you ever find yourself taking a screenshot or a picture of a specific window using command-shift-3 or command-shift-4 (for a user-defined area of the screen) then having to go to the top level (actually known as 'root') of your hard drive to retrieve it? This can be annoying. This simple extension will place those pictures directly on your desktop for easy access."<br><br><br>NoAliasBadge (compatible with Mac OS 9.1) "by Ouzak (Kazuo Saito) "If you installed MacOS 8.5 on your Macintosh, and your Mac looks like the other window system, please try this." In other words it will remove the Alias "arrow" Apple introduced in Mac OS 8.5 and later from the icons."<br><br><br>oh, and lest anyone ask about stability issues, let me categorically state that any and all these widgets that i have posted work perfectly with Mac OS 9.1 (and earlier Mac OS versions, to a point, but get 9.1 and be happy) and i have installed them on any number of various Macs... <br><br><br>¥À¥
