I’ve been using LaunchBar for well over a year now, but I keep finding new things that make me excited about it. Like what?

Well, like Recent Items.

After invoking LaunchBar, start typing recent to bring up Recent Items, then right arrow to go to files, folders, and apps you’ve been in (recently).

Simple, but oh so powerful. The beauty of Recent Items is that it functions as a folder itself.  Once inside Recent Items, you can just start typing part of a file name to filter the list further. You can even enter folders and move/copy things to folders.

It’s also a great companion to item 3 in my list of methods for using LaunchBar to send email attachments. If you remember working on a file earlier in the day, you can bet it's in Recent Items. There's no telling how many keystrokes it's saved me since I found it.
