File Management

In Mac OS, you use the Finder to organize and manage your files.

  • View the contents of your disks in windows in a variety of ways.

  • Automatically sort items by name, kind, creation date, or other criteria in ascending or descending order.

  • Rename items.

  • Create folders to store related items.

  • Move items stored on disk to organize them so they're easy to find and back up.

  • Copy items to other disks to back them up or share them with others.

  • Delete items you no longer need.

  • Mount and eject disks.

  • Write to, or "burn," CD-ROMs.

Tip
