We use our computers for many things today since through these devices we have the possibility to create and manage documents . In this way we can create different folders and files to keep more computer control of all the information that we are storing on our computer..
Finder is the macOS search engine where we find different access options to both disks and libraries (downloads, desktop, etc.) and is a central point for all this type of data and objects.
On many occasions, in some folders we host files or elements that we must access from the terminal. Normally we do this by navigating between the different folders until we reach it, but this can cause loss of time and errors in case of long routes..
But this can be summarized in a very simple way and it is by accessing this folder in the terminal directly from the Finder and TechnoWikis will explain how to achieve it.
