    About the last few minutes of the video, where Tabs in Finder are mentioned, Prefer Tabs setup being in Sys Pref, General, not Dock when using Big Sur. When I set Prefer Tabs to Always, the Finder doesn’t add a tab when I click on another folder in the sidebar. Am I doing something wrong or has Big Sur changed things?

    Steve: That’s working as it should. The sidebar changes the location of your current Finder tab, it doesn’t open a new one. You can Control+click and select Open in New Tab if you want.

    Thanks, Gary. I do a lot of Ctrl-clicking to get new tabs, was hoping (thought I saw in the video) I could do away with the Ctrl key as I click on Folders in Finder. Can’t do. O well. Keep up the good work!
