Today, I will show you a nice function with Finder, Apple's primary file container (similar to Microsoft's Start menu)
When you open your Finder Application, on the left side, there is a sidebar. If you notice, my sidebar is quite intricate, and it holds many of my most frequently visited folders. If you cannot see your Favorites, press the "Hide" or "Show" button near the top. To customize this sidebar, simply navigate to a commonly used folder, click & drag it over to your sidebar.
If these tips seem too simple or too advanced, feel free to let me know, and I would be happy to tailor them to your needs.
