If I right click on a file, I can open the file by clicking Services and then New MacVim Buffer Here:

enter image description here

However, this is a bit cumbersome.

How can I move the New MacVim Buffer Here menu action to be at the same level as the Service menu action?


I don't think there is a "clean" way to specifically move a single service item in the context menu.

What you can do is increase the amount of items allowed in the context menu before a submenu is created.

In Terminal.app:

defaults write -g NSServicesMinimumItemCountForContextSubmenu -int 7
killall Finder

This will allow up to six elements in the top level menu. Substitute 7 with the desired number.

Unfortunately, all elements from your submenu will be moved up, not just the MacVim one.
