A Finder window is a basic, fundamental element of the Macintosh. When you open any folder or disk, including your hard disk, the Mac displays the contents of the folder in a Finder window. This chapter will walk you through a number of short exercises so you'll feel comfortable using these windows.

I assume you walked through the exercises in Chapter 2 so you know how to click, press, press-and-drag, and maybe even Option-drag!
