Window buttons

In the upper-left corner of each window are three little buttons: red, yellow, and green. These are in color in the active window (the one in front) and gray in all other windows behind that one.

From left to right, the buttons are red, yellow, and green.

When the pointer is positioned near the buttons, tiny symbols appear.

Close a window (red button)

Use the red button, the Close button, to close a window.

1.
If you don't have a window open, single-click on the Finder icon in the Dock to open one.

2.
To close the window, single-click in the red button. This puts it away, back into the folder or disk it came from.

Zoom a window (green button)

Use the green button, called the zoom button, to zoom a window larger or smaller. How large or small the window becomes depends on what is in the window and how large or small it was before you clicked the button.

1.
If you don't have a window open, single-click on the Finder icon in the Dock to open one.

2.
Single-click the green button to zoom the window large enough to see everything, or to zoom it smaller.
