The Home folder on your Mac contains a number of folders Applications, Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Movies, Music, Pictures, Public that you’ll likely access frequently. But strangely, the Home folder is hard to find the in Finder by default. I’ll show you how to find your Home folder and add it to Finder’s sidebar for quick and easy access.

How to find your Home folder

To find your Home folder, open Finder and use the keyboard shortcut Command-Shift-H. You can use the Go pull-down menu from the menu bar to go to the Home folder. (Oddly, the home folder is called Home in this menu.)

Move your Home

With your Home folder selected in Finder, click Command-up arrow to move up one level in Finder. Now, you can click and drag your Home folder and drop it on Finder’s sidebar.

Alternatively, you can go Finder > Preferences and select which folders you’d like to pin to the sidebar. In Preferences, click the Sidebartab and then check the boxes for the folders you want in the sidebar and uncheck those you don’t.

Manage the items in your Finder sidebar

By determining which items that show in the Finder sidebar, you will not only make sure you have relevant folders to hand but you can prevent it from becoming cluttered. This is the second method for adding the Home folder to Finder, but you can also add lots of other useful directories too.

1. Open Finder and click Preferences.

2. Now select the Sidebar tab.

3. Make sure you tick the items that you want in the sidebar. Untick those you do not want.
