Window Wonderland: cool window tips > CONTROLLING WHAT SHOWS UP IN YOUR SIDEBAR

CONTROLLING WHAT SHOWS UP IN YOUR SIDEBAR

By default, a whole bunch of “stuff” shows up in your sidebar, like your hard disks (including any partitions), your iDisk, network volumes, CDs, DVDs, FireWire drives, etc.; plus in the lower section, your Desktop, Home folder, and Applications folders are all there. In fact, there's so much of “their” stuff, there's not much room for “your” stuff. Luckily, you can decide what appears in the sidebar and what doesn't. Just go under the Finder menu and choose Preferences. When the dialog appears, click on the Sidebar icon (up top) and a list of the default sidebar items appears. Uncheck any items you don't want cluttering up your sidebar.
