been wrapping my head around the whole apple os for the last couple of months and am just getting into customizing various parts of it...

I'm on OS 10.5.4

I would very much like to add some shortcuts onto my finder toolbar for various folders and applications.

I've seen a few posts on how this can be done :

http://lifehacker.com/photogallery/L...Tweaks/1884682
http://lifehacker.com/software/finde...bar-230643.php

but just can't get it working on my finder.
I drag the icons up onto the toolbar but they don't stick in place.

I can right click the finder toolbar and choose customise, this then pops up a window with a few options in it ie delete / add folder / burn / etc... these I can easily drag onto the toolbar and they are added.

However I want to add a few other shortcuts of my own...

Does anyone know how I can get this working please?

big thanks if anyone can help..

I don't know what you're doing wrong, but I just tried it by following the directions given from the link you provided and it worked.

I opened "Applications" from the Finder and dragged those shortcuts I wanted to be added to the Finder toolbar. Shortcuts can be removed by right clicking on them and select "remove this item".

Regards.

chscag,

At first when I tried it, didn't seem to work. Then I found that by "hovering" the file or app in the row by the "view" bar, the icons that are there seem to separate, and then I could move my app sideways until I found where I wanted to park it. Hovering opened up the spaces that are there beside the view bar and the Quick Look and Action icons.

I placed my most used apps there, as well as the Eject, Info, Burn and Delete icons. Neat. Click on this thumbnail to see what it looks like...
