This post is the third in a series designed to help newcomers to the world of Mac laptops and desktops easily navigate around their device.
What’s the “Finder”?
The Finder—sounds like a nefarious character in a suspense novel!
Actually, the Finder on your Mac is a helpful tool.
It helps you “find” files.
When you turn on your laptop or computer and all of your programs are closed, you see your desktop screen. When your desktop screen is front and center, your Finder program is running and you will see the the word Finder in the upper left hand corner of your screen. See yellow arrow in the image above.
Actually, the Finder program is always active, so that if you are working in another program (ex. Word) and click back to your desktop you will see Finder in the upper left hand corner.
There is more to the Finder than what we have shared right here. Download our complete instruction sheet by clicking here: Finder
