Finder Toolbar : Did You Know?

Recommended Posts

You probably already know that you can drag a folder to the Finder Sidebar for easy, rapid access. However, did you know that you can drag any file, folder or app to the Finder Toolbar for rapid access?

 

Now, you know.

 

Cheers!

Toolbar ?

Does it work in Mavericks ? I'm not able to do it.

Yup, the toolbar, but I have no idea for 10.9.

No, I did not know that.  Surprised that I didn't.  Kind of cool, but can't see myself using it since that is what the "Favorites" sidebar is for.  Still, thanks for the tip!

You cannot put apps or files in the sidebar as you can with the toolbar.

I see.  I thought that apps and files could be placed in favorites.

 

What apps/files have you placed there?  Have you found it useful at all over, say, placing an app/file in the dock?

 

I could see placing a file utility app there...like StuffIt or something.  It would be nice if the "working folder" was whatever folder you were in when you launched the app.

Yeah it's quite useful. You need to cmd+drag them off IIRC.
