OSX Lion’s Finder thumbnail slider not working?
So far I’m loving Mac’s lastest operating system, Lion. I especially dig the back and forward page swipes in browsers with the trackpad/mouse. Little things like that. I have, however, noticed one thing that’s a tad annoying. I use the thumbnail view in Finder a lot. The column view is a favorite of mine as well, however, I noticed when I switch between these two, the slider at the bottom of the Finder window in Thumbnail mode doesn’t work anymore so I can’t zoom in on the thumbnails.
Until Apple comes out with a proper fix for this, I’ve discovered a temporary fix that will do for now. When in Thumbnail view, press CMD+2 (to get the list view) then CMD+1 (to go back to thumbnail view) and you’ll see your slider will then work fine.
PS: If you can’t see the slider on the Finder window, activate the status bar by going to View > Show Status Bar, or press CMD+/.
