    greetings,
    I have a new mac book pro running os x 10.7.3. I created a few folders/directories off my home directory. How can I get my home directory to show in my Finder Sidebar gui?

    Currently, all I see are:

    All My Files
    AirDrop
    Applications
    Desktop
    Documents
    Downloads
    Movies
    Music
    Pictures

    I'd like to see my home folder so I can select it and then see all the folders in my home directory; like I can on my macbook running 10.6.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks,

    Thanks, but how do I find my home folder in the Finder? I open Finder and I do not see my home folder. That is my problem.

    Cheers

    Press CMD+SHIFT+H to enter your Home folder in Finder, then press CMD+ArrowUp to get into the Users folder, from there drag the folder of your choice to the Sidebar.
    Your Home folder is located inside Macintosh HD / Users / .
