3.3. The Sidebar

As in Windows XP, the Sidebar is a pane at the left side of every navigation window. Unlike Windows, however, the Mac OS X Sidebar doesn't list operations you can perform on the current folder. (For that, you use the Finder's shortcut menu, which you summon by Control-clicking a folder.)

Instead, the Mac OS X Sidebar lists places where you might look for files and folders—that is, disks, folders, and network servers. Above the horizontal divider, you get the icons for your hard drives, iPods, flash drives, and other removable goodies.
