How to bookmark a directory in the Mac Finder (Part 2)

A very important warning: When you drag your folder over to the PLACES section of the Finder, make sure your image looks like the image shown above, where the folder is clearly going to be placed between two existing folders. If you drag your folder over to the left side, and you're highlighting another folder in the PLACES section, you're going to end up moving your folder to that other folder. That's a great technique for moving your folder from one place to another, but it's not what I'm trying to describe here.

Creating Mac Finder bookmarks (Part 1)

One of the cool things about the Mac Finder is that you can create shortcuts, or bookmarks, to folders that you visit frequently. This is cool, because instead of clicking around to get to your commonly used directories, you can get to them with just one mouse click. That's as fast I can think to make it.

Lynx bookmarks (Tue, Sep 30, 2003)

I often use the Lynx character-based web browser, but can never remember or find their obscure commands. Two that I really need are how to create bookmarks, and how to access them.

To create a bookmark in Lynx, just go to the page that you want, then press the letter 'a'. When Lynx brings up a prompt, select the letter 'd' (for Document). That's all.

JBuilder - How do I set bookmarks in my files?

When using JBuilder, you can set bookmarks in your open files to easily move back-and-forth between these files. For example, suppose you have five files open at one time, but for a little while you just want to move back and forth between File1.java and File2.java. Bookmarks let you do this. You set one bookmark in File1.java, and another bookmark in File2.java.

Because you set bookmarks at specific line numbers, you also go right back to the same line each time you move back and forth.

Okay, so how do I set a bookmark?
