Are you new to using a Mac and struggling to find the Utilities folder? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! In this article, we will guide you step by step on how to access the Utilities folder on your Mac.

Method 1: Using Finder

If you are familiar with Windows, think of Finder as the Mac equivalent of File Explorer. Here’s how you can use Finder to locate the Utilities folder:

  1. Click on the Finder icon located in your Dock. It looks like a smiling face.
  2. In the menu bar at the top of your screen, click on “Go”.
  3. A dropdown menu will appear.

    Press and hold the “Option” key on your keyboard.

  4. You will notice that a new option called “Library” appears in the dropdown menu. Click on it.
  5. A new Finder window will open. Look for a folder called “Utilities” and double-click on it to access its contents.

Note: If you don’t see the “Library” option after pressing and holding the “Option” key, it means that your Library folder is hidden. In this case, follow Method 2 mentioned below to access Utilities.

Method 2: Using Spotlight Search

If you prefer using keyboard shortcuts or if Method 1 didn’t work for you, try using Spotlight search to find the Utilities folder:

  1. Press Command + Spacebar simultaneously on your keyboard to open Spotlight search.
  2. Type “Utilities” in the search bar and press Enter or click on the magnifying glass icon next to it.
  3. A list of search results will appear. Look for the result that says “Applications” under the “In Folder” column and click on it.
  4. You will now see a list of applications. Scroll down until you find the “Utilities” folder.
  5. Double-click on the “Utilities” folder to open it.

Method 3: Using Launchpad

If you prefer a more visual approach, you can use Launchpad to access the Utilities folder:

  1. Click on the Launchpad icon located in your Dock. It looks like a silver rocket ship.
  2. A grid of application icons will appear on your screen.

    Look for a folder called “Other”.

  3. Click on the “Other” folder to open it.
  4. You will now see a list of additional folders, including “Utilities”. Click on it to access its contents.

Note: If you don’t see the “Other” folder, it means that it is not enabled in your Launchpad settings. To enable it, go to System Preferences > Mission Control and check the box next to “Show Other Spaces in Dock”.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to get to Utilities on your Mac using various methods. Whether you prefer using Finder, Spotlight search, or Launchpad, accessing the Utilities folder is now just a few clicks away!
