File Management

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

  • 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," data CDs.
