Chapter 2. Managing Files and Folders > Changing the Window View

Changing the Window View

Mac OS X displays the contents of a drive or folder in different ways to help you find the information you're looking for about a file or folder. The available views include Icon, List, and Column. You can change the window view from the View menu, or you can click the View buttons on the Finder window toolbar.

Icon view displays icons, sorted alphabetically in horizontal rows, with the name of the file or folder below each icon. You can also customize the display to include information about the file next to each icon, or a miniature representation of the file or folder. A picture file displays a preview of the image.
