Part I: Meet Jaguar >  Working with Folders and Files

Chapter 4. Working with Folders and Files

Files and folders flesh out the framework of your computing organization. You must store your work in each program as a file on a disk. (Programs or applications also run from files that are stored on the Mac’s hard disk.) To enable you to find files more easily when you need them, you organize the files in folders. Mac OS X Version 10.2 Jaguar conveniently sets up a few storage folders for you. If you’re a beginner, you’ll find this chapter particularly useful. If you have a little Mac time under your belt, this chapter will help you identify where Mac OS X Version 10.2 differs from earlier operating systems such as Mac OS 9 in terms of file management—and there are differences. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to:

  • Locate your Home folder

  • Open, make, or move a folder

  • Copy or duplicate a file

  • Throw a file in the Trash and retrieve it if needed

  • Review file information

  • Change a file or folder name

  • Create an alias or favorite
