Window Wonderland: cool window tips > USING “FAVORITES” IN TIGER

USING “FAVORITES” IN TIGER

If you're used to how previous versions of Mac OS X handled Favorites, you'll have to get used to a whole new flavor, as those who used Panther well know. First, Apple hid the Favorites folder (I think they did this because they want you to use the sidebar for your favorites, rather than the Favorites folder itself). But if you want the Favorites folder back, look inside your Home folder, inside your Library folder, where you'll find a Favorites folder. Drag this folder to the sidebar of any open Finder window. When you do this, the Favorites folder icon will change to the familiar “red heart” icon, and you can put aliases of your most-used folders and files within this Favorites folder. Then you're only one click away, even in Open/Save dialogs.
