# How can I access my iCloud files on my Mac?

When I save a file that I've written in TextEdit, it saves to iCloud by default. If I close the file, and close TextEdit, the only way for me to find that file is by searching it in Spotlight and opening it. I can't find a folder on my computer that contains those files. When I right click the file that shows up in Spotlight there is no option to open enclosing folder. I tried going on icloud.com and logging into my account but I couldn't just get a simple list of the files I had saved on the cloud.

Where are my iCloud files? And how I can I remove them from iCloud?

I've been looking online for about an hour at this point for an answer to this question and am stunned that I haven't found one/anyone else with the same problem. I'm sure I must be missing something very obvious.

Have you already look in Home/Library/Mobile Documents? –  Tom Gewecke Sep 10 '12 at 18:58

The iCloud files are cached on your Mac, so you can access them even when you have no internet connection. They are stored in ~/Library/Mobile Documents/.
