Finder Lessons for the Mac

A major key to working with your Mac is mastering the Finder and it’s windows. When you are viewing your files and folders on your Mac, you are doing this through a Finder window. Through this window, you can view your files and folders as lists or icons, you can group files together based on date or application, you can customize the folders in a window, and even customize the toolbar of a Finder window. I cover these features and more in this topic on working with the Finder on the Mac.
