OS X Mavericks: Finder Tabs Finally Come to the Mac

A feature Linux users have been enjoying for a while, tabs are now available in Finder

Apple is reiterating OS X this year with a bunch of new features and visual pleasantries, some of which converge to give people a real boost in their workflow.

One of these converging visual-functional features is Finder Tabs, a new addition in OS X 10.9 which enables people to keep a single Finder window open with multiple tabs packing different types of files in them.

For example, if you’re doing some work and want to have both your documents and some photos handy, all you need to do is open your Documents and your Photos folders in two separate tabs in the same Finder window. Need some collaboration to go with that? Open a third tab to use AirDrop.

According to the Cupertino giant, “Finder Tabs help you declutter your desktop by consolidating multiple Finder windows into one.”

As you’d imagine, you can switch between tabs and customize their views individually. Drag them around to put them in the order you prefer, and just drag and drop files between them if you need. The Finder also goes full-screen, for distraction free work.
