ABSTRACT
In a Mac Finder window, users can create a shortcut to a folder by dragging it from its actual location in the hierarchy and dropping it in the list of Favorites on the left. As the folder is dragged between the folder names, a horizontal line appears to indicate an insertion point if dropped. This is the equivalent of the Libraries shortcuts in Windows. See Windows Libraries.
