Working with Cover Flow

Cover Flow (Figure 4), which is brand new in Mac OS X 10.5, displays each item in a folder as a preview of its first page. You can use this feature to scroll through files and find one you're looking for, even if you don't know its name.

To flip through documents in Cover Flow

Use one of the following techniques in a Cover Flow view window (Figure 35):

  1. Click the left or right scroll button in the scroll bar at the bottom of the Cover Flow pane.
  2. Drag the scroller in the scroll bar at the bottom of the cover flow pane.
  3. Click the icon or preview for an item in the Cover Flow pane.
  4. Press the uparrow.jpg or downarrow.jpg key for the previous or next item.
