    Finder Window + New File button in toolbar
    Hello.

    I have a question realted to the finder's toolbar:
    it is easy to customize the toolbar and select some buttons that one may need in his work. For instance usually I add the "New Folder" button to the toolbar because in my work it comes in handy many times. How do I add a such button for craeting a new empty file ?

    because I see that there is no such button by default, can I have a way to add a button to the toolbar that when pressed will execute an app/apple script/shell script(like "touch myNewFilen") ?

    thanks

    You could try NuFile. It won't put a button in the toolbar, but it adds a contextual menu (right click) which does what you want.

    You CAN make a script/app and drag it on to the tool bar....
