I purchased my first Mac last week and after getting over the original excitement of owning such a beautiful piece of technology I find myself getting used to the reality of changing from Windows to OS X.
I'm getting the hang of most things Apple and they way that they do things, however, I think that Apples 'Finder' file manager app is awful when compared to Windows Explorer.
Anybody out there able to recommend a decent File Manager App?
Anything in particular that you dislike?
The layout is the main issue for me. After 20 years of Windows I'm struggling a little bit in finding my way around.
I know how you feel. I had a similar experience when I got my first mac a couple of years ago. I would suggest you try and stick with it for a bit longer before you give up on it.
Finder is fairly integral to OS X. I reckon its worth your while persevering with it until you become comfortable with it. But give it a bit more time and you will get there, and then you won't look back.
Thanks for your advice and suggestions, it's much appreciated
TotalFinder gets my recommendation too.
Wow thanks for the totalfinder suggestion - never heard of this before it's great. Bit expensive though.
can def recommend pathfinder
I've never used anything but the "Finder". But I've never used Windows so I don't know what feature you think you are missing.
