DON'T LIKE LABELS? TRY COMMENTS INSTEAD

If you're not a big fan of labels (color-coding files and folders by adding a ring of color around their name), you might want to try adding a comment instead. A comment is like your own personal note added to a file or folder. These comments are visible in Finder windows set to List view. To add a comment (your personal note) to a file, just click on the file you want to add a comment to, and then press Command-I. The Info dialog will appear. Click on the right-facing triangle to the left of the words “Spotlight Comments” to reveal a field for entering your personal notes. Just click in this field and start typing. When you're done, close the window. To see your comments when in List view, you first have to change a preference setting to make the Comments column visible. Make sure you're viewing your window in List view, and then press Command-J to bring up the View Options dialog. In the section called Show Columns, turn on the checkbox for Comments. If you want every window in List view to show comments (not just the currently active window), make sure you check the All Windows button at the top of the dialog.
