    I just discovered your neat Fetch Widget that allows me to go to any of my Fetch installed shortcuts .. neat

    Now, is there a way in the left column of the OSX 10.4 window (where all my HDs are, as well as applications etc.) to establish an icon that will open up my entire web site or any of the Fetch installed shortcuts ... in short, use the Finder window just as I now use your Fetch Widget ???

    Thanks in advance

    Hi John,

    Yes, you can use the droplet shortcut feature (new in Fetch 5.2) to do that. A droplet shortcut is an icon that you can use to open any remote folder in Fetch by clicking on it in the Finder, or to upload files to a remote folder by dragging them to the droplet shortcut icon.

    You can do this by:

    * Open one of your Fetch shortcuts.
    * Once you are connected, go to the File menu, and choose Save Droplet Shortcut.
    * Give the droplet shortcut a name that suits you, and save it in a convenient location.
    * Then go to the Finder, and drag the icon of the droplet shortcut to the sidebar (left column) of the Finder window, where your hard drives and folders are listed (it needs to go in the lower half of the column, in the section beneath the hard drives).

    Then you can click on the droplet shortcut icon in the Finder window sidebar to open that shortcut, or drag files to the icon to upload them to that shortcut.

    Repeat for as many shortcuts as you'd like.

    See the droplet shortcuts topic in Fetch Help (or click the link here) for more information about droplet shortcuts.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions.
