Chapter 2. Managing Files and Folders > Going to Common or Recent Places

Going to Common or Recent Places

Mac OS X keeps a list of your most recently used files, folders, and network computers. Instead of navigating through a long list of folders to open a recently used file, you can use the Recent Folders list to find it quickly. If you want to go to a common location, such as your computer, network connections (), iDisk (), Home folder, Applications folder, Utilities folder, or one you specify, the Go menu makes it quick and easy. After you have opened several folders, you can use the secret folder hierarchy menu in a window's title bar to quickly go backwards through the chain of folders.

Go Places

Click the Go menu.

Select any of the following:

  • Common locations. Click the name of the place.

  • Recent Folders. Point to Recent Folders, and then click the name of the folder.

  • Specific folder. Click Go To Folder, type a path location, and then click Go. You can use the tilde (~) to indicate the Home folder, “~/Documents/”.

To go backwards through the folders, hold down , click the window's title bar, and then click a location from the folder hierarchy menu.

TIMESAVER Press +[ to go Back a folder; press +] to go Forward a folder.

When you're done, click the Close button.
