Do more with Hot Corners
Get your Mac to fight your corners by working with them
The corners of your Mac’s screen generally go unused. While the Hot Corners feature in Mission Control’s preferences allows you to quickly execute functions by moving the pointer to a corner, it’s limited by the relatively few actions available.
That’s where CornerClick (free, gschueler.github.io/CornerClick) is useful; it allows you to assign multiple commands to each corner, such as opening files or directing your browser to a specific URL. You can distinguish each command with modifier keys – holding ç, say, while the pointer is in the corner of the screen to perform a different action, multiplying its uses.
Like Hot Corners, CornerClick can be used to make shortcuts to the Desktop, Dashboard and screen saver, and while it won’t allow you to access Mission Control or Launchpad, it makes up for it with the option to run AppleScripts or even apps created in Automator.
The relatively simple utility has a surprising amount of versatility. Investing just a little effort into setting it up can quickly pay off by enhancing how you use your Mac. Adam Smith
