My problem here is that i created a folder and filled it with videos on my desktop. Now, i want to clear my desktop thus wanting to put the videos folder into my sidebar in Finder. However, when i drag it to my finder, the folder icon on my desktop stays and i do not want it there. How do i get rid of it? HELP!
The sidebar isn't a folder or a location on the drive. You can't move anything to it. It's for one-click access to common folders and places that you may want that one-click access to.

What you should do is move that folder to your Home folder. Just drag it from the desktop to that Home folder icon in the sidebar. It should then move. Once done, you can add it to the sidebar if you still please.

(Doh! cradom beat me by that much)


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu). Also advise us if you have any antivirus or "cleaning" software installed on your Mac. If you are using MacKeeper, you are hereby advised to uninstall it.
