There are few features of OS X that we spend more time using but probably think the least about. The Finder provides you with access to all the files on your Mac and helps keep you organized, providing you with the ability to move, copy and delete files, organize them into folders, and tag them colors and descriptions to make it easy to find them later. The roots of the Finder run very deep — this is a core element of the Mac operating system that's been with us since the very first Mac appeared in 1984. Since then its form and function has changed and evolved, but the Mac is still recognizably the Mac, with descriptive desktop icons and titles. Think you know everything there is to know about the Finder? Don't count on it. We find new tips all the time!
