4. Dock, Desktop, and Toolbar > The Finder Toolbar

The Finder Toolbar

At the top of every Finder window is a small set of function icons, all in a brushed-aluminum row (Figure 4-6). The first time you run Mac OS X 10.4, you’ll find only these icons on the toolbar:

  • Back, Forward. As you’ve probably noticed, the Mac OS X Finder works something like a Web browser. Only a single window remains open as you navigate the various folders on your hard drive.

    The Back button returns you to whichever folder you were just looking at. (Instead of clicking Back, you can also press -[, or choose Go→Back—particularly handy if the toolbar is hidden, as described in The Finder Toolbar.)

    The Forward button springs to life only after you’ve used the Back button. Clicking it (or pressing -]) returns you to the window you just backed out of.
