    Issue with the 'finder' tool
    Hi all,

    New Mac user here and I have a question that I hope you may be able to assist me with.

    I was moving some files about tonight and I had 'finder' open and opened a new 'finder' window so I could drag and drop.

    I dragged a file from one folder to the other window but I accidentally added the file to the toolbar area. This now shows as an icon, I know that you can amend this to show as text, text and icon or just an icon.

    What I want to know is how do you remove the file from the toolbar?

    screenshot attached, you can see an avi file and a music file on the toolbar;

    I try to 'two finger click' on the files but the toolbar menu appears asking how I want to view files on it....all I want to do is remove them.

    Can anyone help me out?

    Thanks guys.

    Hold down Command and drag it off of the toolbar.
