Lesson 6. Personalize Your Mac to Meet Y... > Organize the columns in List View

Organize the columns in List View

1.
To organize the items in your list by any column, just click on a column heading to organize everything by that. For instance, if you want all the different sorts of files grouped together so you can clearly see which ones are, say, Photoshop files, organize by the “Kind” column.

The column heading under which everything is organized is the blue one. For example, in the illustration on the opposite page, the items are organized by “Name.”

2.
To alphabetize, or sort, the items in the list backwards or forwards, click the heading triangle. That is, perhaps you want the items in the “Name” column to be listed alphabetically backwards: First click on the “Name” column heading. Then single-click the tiny triangle (the “sort” triangle, or arrow) you see on the right side of the column heading.

If you would like your items to be sorted by “Size” in ascending or descending order, first click on the “Size” column heading. Then, if necessary, single-click the tiny sort arrow to reverse the current order.

3.
To horizontally rearrange the order of the columns (except the “Name” column), press on any column heading (except “Name”) and drag it to the right or left. You will see the other columns move over to make room. Drop the column (let go of the mouse button) when it's positioned where you want it.

4.
To resize the width of the columns, just press on the dividing line between any column; the pointer changes to a double-headed arrow. Drag the double-headed arrow to the left or right.
