FruitMenu has become an indispensable part of my OS X experience. Not because I was raised on the “Classic” Apple Menu, nor did I think too highly of Windows’ “Start” menu, but because browsing my entire hard drive from a simple hierarchical menu is the best damned thing in the world.
Praise aside, I was most disappointed to see Unsanity include “Mounted Volumes” as an item available for FruitMenu’s contextual menu manipulations; but not in the Apple Menu. Being able to browse mounted volumes with the same ease I browse my hard drive has long been a coveted feature; and to see it included in one part of their application and not the other… distressing.
Through the tears, I’ve come up with a partial solution. A workaround:
- Using TinkerTool or Cocktail, enable “Invisible files” in the finder.
- In your Macintosh HD you’ll find a folder by the name of “.Volumes” create an alias to this folder.
- Drag the alias to your “FruitMenu Items” folder and Hey-Presto! Access to all mounted volumes from your Apple Menu.
