How to Find Current Location

In Windows, you could easily know where you are because Windows Explorer always shows you the “path” information.

In contrast, Mac doesn’t do the same in Finder by default.  When just started using the Mac, I always got lost between folders and files.  You may say that it’s no big deal but habits cannot be changed overnight.  Moreover, I feel more comfortable of knowing where I am. Don’t you?

Actually, the solution is right in front of our eyes.

Open Finder and click View and enable the Show Path Bar function on the menu.  Then the path information is shown up at the bottom.

I won’t get lost any more.

Similarly, checking Hide Sidebar can turn off the sidebar (Windows folder pane) on the left.
