    I have just noticed that some of my folders that I have created on my Mac have one or two spaces at the end of the folder name. Is there any way I can find out which folders/files have a space at the end so I can edit them and remove the space?

    Thanks
    Darren

    Open a finder window.
    Find (Command-F, or Menu Bar > File > Find)
    By Default, the search criteria is set to 'Kind is Any'
    Change 'Kind' to 'Name', and the secondary search from 'matches' to 'ends with'.
    Type in a single space into the search field to the right of 'ends with'.

    The grey bar above that search criteria will indicate where you are searching.
