Temas de interés I’m not against this kind of methodology, but I do think that many times the best thing you can do to improve your productivity is simply to organize your life better, and that in the case of a Mac means a flawless Finder that allows us to find what we need in a short period of time.

The personalization of the archives, and their organization is basic. Here are my three basic tricks that will improve the way you use the Finder.

  • Add access to the most used folders, remove the ones you don’t need. Normally people use the sidebar of the Finder window to add accesses to the most used folders, but if you need more space remember that in the same way the title bar of the window is customizable and by right clicking on it we can not only modify the structure of the buttons, but also add new buttons that can be useful and even shortcuts to files and folders.
  • Organize the files in a logical way. It’s something basic, each one of us has our own personal system but remember that you can use some system tricks like color labels, also remember that if you are lazy to rename many files in the Finder you can use Automator, another great trick is to access the Finder preferences and modify the default search in the search box, so that it searches the current folder and not the system.
  • Use a display that suits the type of work you do. If you intend to work with images or files that you should generally preview, it is simply less useful to use a list view. Previewing files is important but even more so is how we sort them, many folders may make more sense in chronological order than by name.
  • Bonus: jumps between system folders. The last trick is very simple, it is to make use of the shortcuts to the system folders, so you can jump between your applications and documents only by using the command cmd+shift+a for the Apps folder and cmd+shift+d for the desktop folder… you have the complete list of shortcuts from the FinderIr menu, it is just a matter of learning the ones we use the most.
