Hello all,

Its maybe a stupid question but i'm still abit new with imac.

I was working in my finder widow and i pressed control + T because i tought i would get a new finder window.

But what happend is, the highlighted file ( a pdf file) was coppied into the slidbar at the left side of the finder window.

But when i try to drag it into the dropbox it won't remove it.
How can i remove that .pdf file from the left application slidbar :s

I already tried this url from apple but nothing i could find
=> Mac OS X keyboard shortcuts

You can see the command + T function at that url. But not how to remove an item :p
Please help

Thanks in advance for the answer

Right click on the item in the sidebar -> "remove from sidebar"

All it did was adding a shortcut to the file in the Finder sidebar. So you are good to remove it without losing the file.

Command+n is a new Finder Window :-)

Hold the control key and select the item on the sidebar. It has an option to remove from sidebar. Also if you have right click enable just right click the item -> remove from sidebar
