Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Ever open something and then forget where it was that you put it? If you're like me, you prefer the easiest possible solution to a problem. While there are other ways of finding documents you were recently using, the simplest is a little-known trick you can use with the Recent Items menu in your Apple Menu.
All you need to do is hold down the command (Apple logo/"clover") key while you have the Recent Items menu open and the option for each item will change to 'Show [item] in Finder'. Just click on that document you JUST had open, and a Finder will will open showing you exactly where it is.
