Getting Around your Mac

In this lesson for macOS Mojave, I introduce you to various ways you get around the Mac. This includes an introduction to the Finder, Finder Window, Desktop and Desktop Folder, Menu Bar, and Dock. These are more of an introduction on these features just to get you acquainted, throughout the tutorial I have more in-depth coverage of these features and more.

Introduction to the Finder
The Finder is how you get around your Mac. The finder controls all the windows you use to view and work with your files and folders. It is an app that is always running on your mac, and you can always find it on the far left of the Dock.

Introduction to a Finder Window
A Finder Window is how you view and work with your files and folders on your Mac. Think of it as a window into your hard drive. If you do not have any windows open, you can click on the Finder on the Dock, this will open a new Finder Window showing you all your recent files by default.

Introduction to the Desktop
The Desktop is what you see when you do not have windows open. This is where your desktop picture is shown, or wallpaper if you are coming from Windows. On the right side of the display, you will find all your files and folders that are stored on your Desktop. You will also see any external hard drives that are connected to your Mac.

Introduction to the Desktop Folder
You can also access all your files and folders that are located on your Desktop through your Desktop Folder. The Desktop is just another folder on the Mac. If you make a change to a file on the Desktop, that same change will be applied to the file shown in the Desktop Folder, as it is the same file.

Introduction to the Menu Bar
The Menu bar on a Mac is always located at the top of your display. It will show the active app on the left side, with all the menu items for that app. If you click on the Desktop, it shows the Finder app as the Desktop is part of the Finder.

Introduction to the Dock
The Dock is located at the bottom of your display by default. The Dock is divided into three sections in macOS Mojave. On the left are your favorite apps, to the right of those are your recent apps and open apps that are not a favorite, and to the right of your recent apps are your favorite files and folders as well as your trash.

A look at the Folder Hierarchy of the Mac

In this lesson for macOS Mojave on the Mac, I look at the folder hierarchy of macOS Mojave. The better you understand how your Mac is organized, the easier it will be to keep it organized with your files and folders.

Folder Structure
macOS is installed the Macintosh HD by default. This is the hard drive that is on your computer. Think of this hard drive as a filing cabinet. When you open Macintosh HD, you’ll see 4 folders, think of these for folders as drawers in your filing cabinet. These four folders are:

  • Applications: This is where all your applications are stored. If you install a new application, it will be installed in this folder. Nothing else should be stored in this folder.
  • Library and System: These next two folders are used by macOS and should not be touched.
  • Users: This last folder contains all the user files and folders including your documents and downloads. Your computer can have multiple users, so when you open the Users folder, you will see all your users. In most cases, it will just be a single user. When you open the users’ folder, you will see the documents, downloads, music, movies, and other folders. This is where all the users’ files and folders are stored.

Accessing Folders from the Menu Bar
You can easily access a number of folders the Mac uses including the Applications folder, Documents folder, Downloads folder, and more. To see and select which one of the folders you want to ope, go the ‘Go’ menu in the Menu Bar. You do have to be in the FInder to see this menu. Once you click on ‘Go,’ you’ll see all the folders you have access too from this menu. Just select the folder you want to open top open it in the Finder.

Accessing Folders from the Sidebar in a WIndow
When you have a Finder window open, on the left of the window is a sidebar. In this sidebar will be a number of folders. Just select the folder you want to open, and your window will open to that folder.

Opening Folders
When you are looking at your folders in a Finder window, you just double click on it to open it. When looking at your folders in list view, you can also click on the triangle to the left of the folder name to open the folder. In column view, when you select a folder, the contents of that folder will be shown in the next column.
