The Sidebar

You have used the Sidebar a number of times already. Here are a couple of extra tips, as well as a press-and-drag practice.

1.
Position the pointer anywhere on the Sidebar edge (don't click or press yet) and it will change into a double-headed arrow, as shown circled to the left.

2.
Press-and-drag the double-headed arrow; drag to the left to minimize the amount of space the Sidebar takes up. For this exercise, drag the edge to the left until only the icons are visible, as shown below, then let go of the mouse.

3.
When only icons are visible, position your mouse over any Sidebar item—don't click or press or anything, just hover. The tool tip with the name of the item pops up.

4.
To completely hide the Sidebar, drag the edge all the way left. Your window will look like the one shown here. Notice in the window pane you see the same folders that were in the Sidebar.

5.
To get the Sidebar back, just press-and-drag the left edge; drag to the right.
