Part 2. Working with Disks, Folders, and Files > Using Different Folder Views

Using Different Folder Views

To switch to Icon view, choose View, as Icons.

If the icons are stacked on top of each other, choose View, Clean Up to space them out so you can see them all.

To switch to Column view, choose View, as Columns.

Drag the bar between two columns to adjust the columns' width.

INTRODUCTION

You can view Finder windows in three ways. Icon view is convenient when a folder contains just a few files and you want to be able to tell them apart quickly. List view enables you to sort the contents of a window, and Column view provides a quick way of burrowing down into a series of nested folders.


TIP

Wide Angle View

To adjust column widths in column view, drag the small double line at the bottom of the column divider. It's only visible if the column contains a list of files and folders; you can't adjust empty columns.


To switch to List view, choose View, as List.

Drag the right edge of a list column header to change that column's width, or drag a column header to a different position to change the order of the columns.

Choose View, Show View Options to select which list columns are visible.

Check boxes to choose which columns are visible in the active window.
