Are you a Mac user looking to locate the Users folder on your system? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to find the Users folder on your Mac. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Open Finder

To begin, open the Finder application on your Mac. You can do this by clicking on the Finder icon located in your Dock, which is typically found at the bottom of your screen.

Step 2: Go to the “Go” Menu

Once you have opened Finder, navigate to the top menu bar and click on the “Go” menu. A dropdown menu will appear with various options.

Step 3: Select “Go to Folder”

In the “Go” dropdown menu, select the option that says “Go to Folder.” This will open a small window where you can enter a specific file path.

Step 4: Enter File Path

In the “Go to Folder” window, enter “/Users/” (without quotes) in the text field. This is where the Users folder is located on your Mac.

This file path is case-sensitive, so make sure to type it exactly as shown here. Once you have entered the file path, click on the “Go” button.

Step 5: Locate Users Folder

After clicking on “Go,” Finder will navigate directly to the Users folder on your Mac. You should now be able to see all user accounts associated with your computer.

The Users folder contains individual folders for each user account created on your Mac. These folders are named after their respective usernames.

You can access and manage files within each user’s folder by clicking on their respective folder name.

Step 6: Access Subfolders

Within each user’s folder, you may find additional subfolders such as Documents, Music, Pictures, and more. These subfolders are created automatically by the system to help organize files for each user.

To access these subfolders, simply click on the desired folder name. You can then view and manage files within each subfolder.

Tips:

  • Shortcut: You can quickly access the Users folder by pressing Command + Shift + H on your keyboard.
  • Show Path Bar: To view the full file path of a folder in Finder, go to View > Show Path Bar. This will display the location of the currently selected folder at the bottom of your Finder window.

Congratulations! You have successfully located the Users folder on your Mac.

Now you can easily access and manage files for each user account. We hope this tutorial was helpful to you!
