Before Big Sur I can just hold down the command key and drag an app into the finder toolbar. But with Big Sur that has stopped to work.

I used to have vscode and BBEdit on my finder toolbar and after upgrading to Big Sur they just shows 2 big question mark icons.

Running macOS Big Sur (11.0.1) I can add an application to the Toolbar in Finder by first selecting the target application in Finder and then while dragging the target application to the Toolbar, and before actually being over it, press and hold the key and then drop the target application on the Toolbar.

You will know you are doing it right because a green circle with + in the middle of it will appear when having moved over the Toolbar while pressing the key while dragging the target application onto the Toolbar in Finder.

  • Oh right, only press the command key when the icon is on the toolbar not before! – Qiulang Nov 24 '20 at 3:37
  • @Qiulang, RE: "Oh right, only press the command key when icon is on the toolbar not before!" -- No that is the exact opposite of what I said! You have to press key before you are over the Toolbar. – user3439894 Nov 24 '20 at 3:39
  • No matter what I had added them to my toolbar :D – Qiulang Nov 24 '20 at 3:43
