Chapter 4. The Finder: Working with File... > The Desktop and Finder Preferences

The Desktop and Finder Preferences

The desktop is, for all intents and purposes, a global Finder window that sits behind all the other windows on the system. You can copy files to the desktop, create aliases on the desktop, and so on. The primary difference is that the desktop is only available in the Icon view mode.

Tip

The contents of the desktop are also accessible from the Desktop folder contained within your home directory (Path: ~/Desktop).
