Mac Quick Tip: Quickly Install New Preference Panes

Have you downloaded something like RCDefaultApp that exists in the form of a System Preference pane, but think the instructions on creating a folder and moving it seem like an awful lot of work?

It is a lot of work. Way too much work.

In Panther, you can simply double-click an uninstalled Preference Pane in the Finder. System Preferences will open, and ask you if you'd like to install this for the current user only (no rights required) or all users (administrator rights required). Pick one, click OK, and you're off to the races. No knowledge of the folder hierarchy needed.
