Go To Folder

Power users love the Go To Folder command in the Finder. It allows you to type the path to a folder instead of using mouse clicks to navigate. You can use autocompletion to do this quickly, even if your folders have long names. The Go To Folder command can also be used in application open and save dialogs.

    If you’re a touch typist (typing without looking) I could perhaps see the advantage. But would it not be easier for most people to click in the sidebar to quickly get to often used folders?

    Thanks a lot! There are a lot of thing that I didn’t know
    But, If I am in a folder and would like to copy his path. How to do?

    Brad: Maybe. But different people like to use their computers in different ways. There are lots of people who love keyboard shortcuts, and lots of people who rarely use them.

    Marçal: Yes. Open a new Finder window. Use Command+Shift+G to open the Go to Folder control. Then drag the folder icon from the title bar of the original Finder window into the field. That puts the path there.

    Can you use this method to navigate within iCloud drive?

    Brenda: No, it doesn’t appear so. Well, I wouldn’t be surprised if you could, but the path to use isn’t obvious to me.

    Brenda: Got it. The path to iCloud Drive is: ~/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs and you can put /Folder after that to access anything inside. It isn’t pretty, but it works.
