QUICK LOOK Finder’s side­bar

Mac Format - - IMPROVE | MAC APPS -

The side­bar

By de­fault, the side­bar ap­pears at the left-hand side of all Finder win­dows, pro­vid­ing fast sin­gleclick ac­cess to fold­ers, mounted me­dia, shared com­put­ers and tags.

Side­bar groups

Items stashed in the side­bar are grouped into cat­e­gories: Fa­vorites, De­vices, Shared and Tags, to help make it eas­ier to find what you’re look­ing for.

Side­bar items

You can store cus­tom items un­der Fa­vorites. Fold­ers and searches are the best things to place there. Add doc­u­ments and apps if you like, but avoid too much clut­ter.

Pref­er­ences

In Pref­er­ences you can ad­just what’s shown in the Finder side­bar. In­di­vid­ual folder pref­er­ences and view op­tions can also be amended to suit.
