We've already told you about some of the Finder secrets in OS X. One of them was the ability to include a path string. However, its functions are not limited to displaying information about the path to an open folder. In this article, we'll take a look at a few useful path bar features in Finder.
Quick navigation to folders
If, while working with the Finder, you want to go back a few folders, then doing so with the path line will be much easier than pressing the navigation keys. You just need to double-click on the desired folder in the path line.
If the path is too long and the folder name is not displayed, then simply hover the pointer over the folder icon. After that, the name of this folder will immediately appear in the path line.
Moving folders and files through the path line
By using the path string, you can save a lot of time on moving folders or files. To move, just drag the desired file with the mouse to the folder in the path line. You can even drag the file to the path bar of another Finder window - it will move anyway.
Moving folders from path line
You can drag the folder from the path bar to any other Finder window or desktop. If you hold down the Option (Alt) key, the folder will be copied, and if you hold down Command + Option, a shortcut will be created for that folder. If you want to have permanent access to a folder, drag it to the Finder sidebar to create a shortcut.
You can also move folders from the path line to other folders on that line.
All these actions can be canceled by pressing a combination of keys the Command + the Z.
