Column View

Below you see a Finder window in Column View. Notice there are little triangles to the right of each folder icon. The triangles indicate the contents of those folders will appear in the column to the right if you single-click on the folder name.

The name in the title bar is the name of the selected folder (not the name of the document that may be selected within that folder).

Exercise 5: Experiment with Column View.

1.
Single-click the Applications icon in the Sidebar. (You can single-click your Documents icon, if you like, as shown above, but you might not have anything in that folder yet.)

2.
Single-click the Column View icon in the Toolbar, as circled above.

3.
In the first column of files, single-click any folder icon to see its contents displayed in the next column.

If you see another folder to the right, single-click that one to display its contents in yet another column.

Your Mac will keep making columns to the right until you select a document of any type (as opposed to a folder). When you select a document, a small preview of some kind will be displayed in the last column.
