2.2. Finder Views

The Finder serves as a graphical file manager, which offers three ways (or Views) to look at the files, folders, applications, and other filesystems mounted on your system. The Finder also sports a toolbar at the top of the window, which gives you quick access to frequently used files and directories, along with a built-in Search field for context-based searches.

More on the Finder toolbar and how to search for files later; for now, let's look at the three Views available to the Finder: Icon, List, and the new Column View. To select any of these views for a Finder window, click on the View menu and select "as Icons" (-1), "as List" (-2), or "as Columns" (-3), respectively.
