[Solved] Finder Favorite Folders  




Our office has a standard folder structure that is used as a template for each project. When working on projects, I like to add key folders to the finder favorites, for easy finder browsing. The problem is that it's hard to keep them straight because folder names are the same across projects. You can't rename the favorite shortcut separately from the folder name.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. I attached a screenshot for clarification.

Create an Alias of the folder (or folders)

Rename the Alias

Drag the renamed Alias into the Finder Side-Bar

The same would work for symbolic links if you are into the command line.

Thanks; that worked. It was finicky when I tried to add the alias to the favorites bar, but they eventually took.
