Hidden Mac Tricks Using Title Icons

Title Icons, also called Proxy Icons, allow you to drag and drop files directly from their document windows without needing to use the Finder. You can also use them in the Finder to drag the folder you are currently viewing without needing to go up a level.

    Another great video. I confirm Pixelmator pro shows the proxy icon, but Affinity Photo doesn't which is where I need it. I suspect Affinity has not followed some Apple standards :( Excel for MAC also does not seem to support this.

    Wow. How many times have I used ⌘S to save a document only to have it go into an unwanted location. Now I can rectify that easily instead of going back out into Finder, hunting for it and then moving it from there.
    I was not even aware of Proxy, or Title Icons. Just another little Mac trick with big advantages.

    Thanks Gary. More great tips on how to speed up my processes when using my Mac. I also noticed that you finder window was opening in a new window instead of tab. I found how to set this so an added bonus.

    Very useful, thanks!
    Regarding the comment Jonathan L made, for me Excel and the other Office apps, do have the title icons. I'm using Office 365 (and Excel for Mac ver 16.64).

    Learning something new from your videos once again. I'm kind of new to Mac OS and come to Macmost website often and I'm always learning something. Thank you.
