Thanks for this. I’m a Windows user trying to provide tech support to my mom who has a Macbook from halfway around the world. Very well put together!

Thank you again!!!!! Many months ago I inadvertently trashed my applications folder from the desktop. I replaced it , but didn’t know how to make it appear as a folder…ditto for my documents folder. After watching this video, I was able to replace both of those icons to their original folder appearance. Yippee!
