How do we add "ARCHIVE" and "TIME MACHINE" to finder locations ?
James: Those are the names of MY external drives. You would see the names of your drives, if you have any.
Thanks for this. If I create a documents in the favorites, will it be stored on my computer? Giving me one documents file in iCloud, one on the MacBook.
Robert: You don't create document in favorites. That's just a list of folders to give you easy access to them. You create a document inside one of those folders. If that folder is on iCloud Drive it would be in iCloud Drive and possibly also on your computer depending on your settings. Otherwise it would just be on your computer.
Any idea what the "On My Mac" folder in favourites is. You have it deselected in the video. It seems to point to nowhere on the harddrive.
Michael: Sometimes apps default to saving files to their own special iCloud Drive folders. Usually they also offer a non-iCloud version too. That would be this "On My Mac" folder. There's no point using it unless you are in a rush or something. Save documents into your Documents folder.
Hi Gary. Leanred a lot again today, in particular about tags which I had underestimated. I have a series of files which I now would like to tag (with a custom tag). Is it possible to select a whole range of docs in finder (or somewhere else) and tag them with the same tag or can it only be done one by one? Many thanks.
Hubert: Yes. You can select multiple files and tag them all at once. Try it and you'll see.
