One of the great things about Mac OS is its user interface flexibility. Although the Mac OS X Finder looks the same on every computer when first installed, it is highly customizable, making it possible for every Mac user to set up his or her computer so it looks and works just right.
This chapter covers the following ways to customize the Finder:
• Finder preferences enable you to set general Finder options, as well as text for labels, sidebar contents, and advanced options.
• Toolbar customization enables you to specify what icons appear in Finder window toolbars and what order they appear in.
• Sidebar customization enables you to add, remove, and shuffle Finder window sidebar contents.
