    How do I remove an item from the Finder Sidebar. I meant to drop it in Documents. Now I can't move it to Documents, or to Trash. Thanks for any help!

    hold the command key (apple key) down and drag the item off the sidebar. It will turn into a cloud at which point you can release the mouse/key combination

    Post your question in 3 or 4 forums, you're bound to get the right answer - 3 or 4 times. :rolleyes:

    You can also right-click (or control-click) on the item in the sidebar and select Remove from Sidebar.
