Reader Nathan Parker was a little too quick on the click and drag. He writes:
I’m a Macworld subscriber & I need HELP! I accidentally removed the Computer link from the Finder sidebar (the same as Go > Computer). I need help getting it back. Could you please help me?
That’s what they pay me for. Yep, it’s easy enough to lose things in the sidebar by dragging them out and watching them disappear in a puff of smoke. Thankfully, they’re easy to replace.
While in the Finder choose Finder > Preferences, click the Sidebar tab, and enable Computer. Your computer will reappear in the sidebar.
