Chapter 3. Viewing and Navigating Mac OS... > Customizing Finder Windows

Customizing Finder Windows

Mac OS X enables you to customize many aspects of Finder windows, including the Places sidebar, the toolbar, the status bar, and the views you use.

Customizing the Places Sidebar

The Places sidebar provides a convenient way to access the mounted volumes on your Mac along with specific folders, documents, and applications (see Figure 3.11). As you read earlier, the upper pane of the sidebar shows all the mounted volumes on your Mac and the lower pane shows folders, documents, and applications. By default, you will see several of the folders within your Home folder, the Applications folder, and a Burn folder, but you can add or remove folders, documents, or applications to this area to customize it.
