Chapter 3. Customizing the Finder > Using Simple Finder

Using Simple Finder

If you have novice users who want to use your computer, you should set up a shared user account with Simple Finder. Simple Finder is a simplified version of the Mac OS X Finder with fewer menus and icons, and allows limited access to the items on your hard disk. The Dock contains only three folders: Documents, My Applications, and Shared. The Documents folder provides a place for users to save their documents, while the My Applications folder provides access to the applications you select for them in Accounts Preferences. If you want to share documents with them, they can access the items in the Shared folder.

Set Up the Simple Finder

Click the Apple menu, and then click System Preferences.

Click the Accounts icon.

Click the user account for the person, or click the Add button (+) to create one.

Click the Limitations tab.

Click the Simple Finder tab.

Select or clear the applications and options you want using the Allow All, Uncheck All, or Locate buttons, to enable or disable for the account.

Click the Close button.
