i'm getting really close to replacing the finder with pathfinder. there are only a couple [small] details holding me back. one is opening compressed files. i currently have my unarchive preferences set to decompress and move compressed file to trash on opening. the finder respects that, but pathfinder doesn't. it's a minor annoyance, but it throws off my workflow and clutters my "working jobs" folder with zip files. is there a setting i'm missing somewhere and/or is this possible with pathfinder?

    Go to Preferences > Features > Compression and disable compression/decompression with Path Finder. After this, your archives should use the default app specified in the Get Info > Open With section.
