1. 1.2. Windows and How to Work Them In designing Mac OS X, one of Apple's key goals was to address the window- proliferation problem. As you create more files, stash them in more folders, and launch more programs, it's easy to wind up paralyzed before a screen awash with cluttered, overlapping rectangles. That's the problem addressed by Exposé, a useful feature that's probably worth at least $34 of Mac OS X's$130 price, and Spaces, which is easily worth another \$17.35. They're described in detail on pages Section 5.3 and Section 5.3.2.3. There are some handy clutter and navigation controls on the windows themselves, too. For example: 1.2.1. The Sidebar The Sidebar is the pane at the left side of every Finder window, unless you've hidden it (and, by the way, also at the left side of every Open dialog box and full-sized Save dialog box). The Sidebar has been overhauled in Leopard. Now this list has as many as four different sections, each preceded by a collapsible heading: • Devices. This section lists every storage device connected to, or installed inside, your Mac: hard drives, CDs, DVDs, iPods, memory cards, USB flash drives, and so on. The removable ones (CDs, DVDs, iPods, and so on) bear a little gray logo, which you can click to eject that disk. • Shared. It took 20 years for an operating system to list all the other computers on the home or small-office network, right there in every window, without any digging, connecting, button-clicking, or window-opening. But here it is: a complete list of the other computers on your network whose owners have turned on File Sharing, ready for access. See Chapter 13 for complete details. • Places. This primary section of the sidebar lists places (in this case, folders) where you might look for files and folders. Into this list, you can stick the icons of anything at all—files, programs, folders, disks, or whatever—for easy access. Each icon is a shortcut. For example, click the Applications icon to view the contents of your Applications folder in the main part of the window (Figure 1-3). And if you click the icon of a file or program, it opens. • Searches. The "folders" in this new Sidebar section are actually canned searches that execute instantly when you click one. If you click Today, for example, the
