I'm not sure what it is called on the Mac, but when I open my Downloads folder (or any other folder), I'm referring to this file explorer window that shows me my file structure.
I know there are options, like I can view my files and folders in panes, or in a detail view, etc.
But what I hate is that I can't modify the current path location easily, nor can I cut and paste the current folder path.
This really drives me nuts, I wish it could be more like Windows's file explorer as it is so easy and intuitive to use.
Is there a hidden option for these 2 issues that I am missing?
