Hello,

In Windows 10, as you probably know, they have what they call a
"File Manager". It shows just about everything in a "tree" format, with Folders, their contents, etc. Just about everything in the pc, and where it is.

Anything even remotely similar for the Mac ?

The documents and APP Folder is a poor substitute, in my opinion.
Or, perhaps, I am just not using it correctly ?

The W10 File mgr certainly seems like a better approach.

Or, perhaps, a third party APP ?

Thanks,
Bob

Hello,
Thanks for help.

I clicked on Finder, and then View and then Show Path Bar.

Seems like absolutely nothing has changed, or is newly showing,
Just desktop, as before.

If I go back to click on it again, it is now greyed out, though.

What, as usual, am i missing ?
Where should this Path Bar show ?
Running High Sierra.

Thanks,
Bob

It shows in Finder windows along the bottom. So when you open a folder, it will show the path to the folder in the new window.

You can use the list view (View > As List) on your main folder and just click the triangles and expand subfolders like Windows.

You can also use the column view (View > As Columns) that is a visual representation of your current path that you can side scroll through.

Hope that helps.

If you want more analysis like that and overview of drives and space, try apps like WhatSize.
