I am a new Macbook user, which is exciting but alas confusing as well. I am trying to add favorites in the side bar under Finder. I read that one can just drag and drop from Applications as in this thread - How can I add new folders to the Favorites in the Finder sidebar?.
However, when I have done it, it does not stick and the icon just goes back into the Applications list as if I have not done anything.
Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong or why this isn't working?
