Access Folders from Finder Windows with a Custom Toolbar

This is a neat trick I accidentally discovered: you can drag folders into any Mac OS X Finder window toolbar and it will stick allowing for easy access.


Additionally, if you drag some of your core ~/ directories into the toolbar they’ll stay in place with custom icons like you can see in the screenshot above: music note for your ~/Music, a camera for ~/Pictures, and a movie reel for ~/Movies.

If you don’t want folders in the Finder window toolbar anymore, just drag them off while holding the Command key.

Holding cmd (Command) + Clicking on the icon and dragging out of the toolbar in Finder.


You can quickly remove Mac OS X Finder window toolbar icons by holding down the Command key and then clicking on the icon you want to remove, continue to hold the click and drag the icon out of the toolbar, where you can release the click. The toolbar icon will disappear in a puff of smoke, just like dragging icons out of the Dock or menubar.

If you’re wondering why my Finder windows don’t have a sidebar, you can remove it with a keyboard shortcut.

This is the typical look of Finder window in Mac OS X.


You can hide the sidebar from Mac Finder windows by hitting Command+Option+S, this command keeps the window toolbar buttons intact across making it different than than clicking on the grey pill-button.

If you’re not a fan of keyboard shortcuts, you can also select this option manually through the View menu and choosing “Hide Sidebar.” This change will affect all Mac OS X windows.


You can also show and hide toolbar of Mac Finder windows by hitting Command+Option+T.

In addition, pressing Command+1, 2, 3, or 4 makes the way to view content of disk or folder.
