Lesson 6. Personalize Your Mac to Meet Y... > Create labels for files and folders

Create labels for files and folders

Labels are colors that you can apply to any file or folder or application as a tool for organizing and searching.

1.
From the Finder menu, choose “Preferences….” Click the “Label” icon.

2.
Change the label names for any color label you want. You don't need to use them all.

3.
To apply the labels, select a file, then go to the File menu and at the very bottom choose a “Color Label.” As you mouse over the color dot, a tool tip appears to tell you the label name.

Or Control-click (or right click) on a file of any sort. From the contextual menu that pops up, choose a color label. The “x” takes a label off.

To add the “Label” column, see 144.
