Use Your Keyboard To Quickly Go to a Folder

If your hands are on the keyboard and you quickly want to go to a folder in the Finder, you can use Shift+Command+G to open up a “Go to the folder” dialog, then type the path to the folder, and then press Return to go. But this may not seem like much of a shortcut if you have to start by typing /users/username at the start of each path. You can skip that by using the ~/ shortcut. So type ~/documents and you go to the Documents folder. Notice also that you do not need to worry about case.
