    Hi Gary, I was especially interested in what you were saying at 8:10 about using Shift-Command-G and how you can just type "/" or "~" to get to the top level or the home directory respectively. But I can't figure out how to implement that tip. Where were you in the system when you said "I'll just hit slash . . . and I go right into it"?
    Thank you for your teaching and tips.

    Robert: You have to be using the Save dialog, like I am in this video. Those shortcuts aren't in the Finder.

    The thing about being a long-time Mac user is that we tend to assume we are "experts" at knowing how to use the Mac. But, after watching your many videos, I realize that I am an "expert" at doing what I already know and am missing many alternative methods. So, now, you have reduced me back to being a beginner. I am loving all the "new" things I am finding via your videos. Thanks.
