Chapter 1. Mac Os X Annoyances > BRING BACK COMPUTER VIEW

BRING BACK COMPUTER VIEW

The Annoyance:

I hate it when Apple deletes features for no good reason. The Finder's Computer view disappeared when I upgraded to Panther. I love the Computer view, which lets me see multiple drives, mounted disk images, and my mounted iPod, all without having to look on the desktop. Yes, I know that the Go menu's Computer command brings up this view, but the command doesn't appear in the sidebar or in new Finder windows.

The Fix:

Actually, Apple didn't delete the Computer view in Mac OS X 10.3; they just disabled it. Fortunately, it's easy to turn back on. With the Finder as the front application, go to the Finder menu and select Preferences (-,). Click the sidebar icon. Under "Show these items in the sidebar," click the checkbox next to Computer.
