    I could recall reading in Macworld that there is a way to add custom items to the Finder's toolbar (and the System Preferences toolbar). Does anyone know how to do this?

    Do you mean adding folders, apps, etc. to the Finder toolbar?

    There might be an easier way, but this works for the Finder window:

    Click and hold down whatever icon you want to put in the Finder toolbar. Now, also hold down the shift key. Drag the icon to the area under your login name, just a little left of center.

    You end up with whatever program, etc. at the top of the Finder window (I've attached a pic, in case this has made no sense whatsoever ... I have activity monitor, grab, and a few others there).

    I just grab the App icon I want (or folder actually) and just drag it up there... hold it there for a second or two - and then voila! You can see where it wants to add... le tit go - and it stays there.

    Seems there are two areas - one left justified and one right justified?
    I have a few Apps on the right side - but when I just tested to see if I use the Shift key or not... I noticed another area on the left that came up as well.

    Hold down the command key and drag them off.
