Chapter 1. Mac Os X Annoyances > PANTHER ATE MY FAVORITES

PANTHER ATE MY FAVORITES

The Annoyance:

I'm bummed that Apple deleted Favorites from Mac OS X 10.3. Yes, I know, the sidebar is supposed to be the new Favorites, because it appears in Open and Save dialogs. But I had a lot of Favorites, and now they're seriously cluttering the sidebar. Also, to be honest, I really miss the heart-shaped icon.

The Fix:

The good news is that you can add a Favorites folder, complete with precious heart-shaped icon, to the Finder's sidebar. The good folks in Cupertino stashed away the old one to keep fans of "classic Favorites" happy. You can also add a Favorites icon to the toolbar, though you must also add it to the sidebar to get it into the Open and Save dialogs. To locate the Favorites folder, open a Finder window and click on your Home folder, and then click on the Library folder (~/Library). Inside, you will find the good ol' Favorites folder. Now drag the Favorites folder to the Finder's sidebar and/or toolbar. Amazingly, the Favorites icon takes on its old heart-shaped icon.
