The Missing Lessons: Using the Finder on the Mac

A while back, I discovered some videos I recorded on using the Finder on the Mac that I have not published. Well, it was time to fix that, so I moved them to my Work In Process folder and… I didn’t do anything again. They sat there. Oops! Well, I rediscovered them and they are now on my site!

These lessons include videos on managing multiple Finder windows, changing the view in a window, and using Quick Look to preview a file without ever opening it. I also show you how to can change what a new Finder window opens to. By default, a window opens to your recent files. This is one of the first things I change, I like a window to open to a specific folders, such as my user folder, and I show you how you can do this with your Mac. I also show you how you can group your files together by application or date, how to perform actions on a file and how to open your Finder windows as tabs. I wrap it up with showing you how to customize the sidebar in a Finder window and how to customize a Finder window toolbar.
