I'm literally on the verge of tears from having to use this. Why?

I'm literally on the verge of tears from having to use this. Why? Because I need to Google how to navigate to an arbitrary directory in Finder.

>no cd .. button
>no root directory button
>search will only list filename matches

I've built fullstack websites, designed databases with all sorta of indexes, implemented custom hashtables in C, a lot of technical stuff, yet this UI has filtered me.

Apple, this is not OK.

    Never understood why some anons use this shit. You have to buy 9001 external applications to emulate features and fix bugs.

      what the frick, have you been watching me work with my macbook??? this is honestly scary how accurate it is.

      > some applications F11 or even ESC doesn't close the application if it is in fullscreen mode
      using the mouse to manually minimize the window works for me, but it's unintuitive that the keys ESC and F11 dont work, yes

      All those moronic ux/ui people said years ago they want to stop exposing fliesystem hierarchies to end users. Just stop using finder. You can probably run midnight commander on macos. Idk what you expected using an apple product.

      its mandatory for work :/

      It's honestly better than the mix of maybe-it-does-maybe-it-doesn't on Windows.
      Also
      >minimize doesn't minimize
      It quite literally does.

    I'm old enough to remember using actual files - that is, a big redwell folder, where we'd put smaller, related folders that then contain documents
    how the frick can you not know how to use the Finder, it's literally organized the way people have organized files for centuries
    >[client name folder]

    receipts

    [...]

    [...]

    [...]

It doesn't make sense, I know, but just use option as your modkey and leave cmd for system related shit. You'll have to get used to that one.

If you close with cmd + q, then it actually closes, but if you have several instances of the program (such as iterm2), then they all close, so be mindful. Haven't found a workaround for this moronicness yet.

    There you go. It's a bit frustrating, but you can at least make the most out of this. Good luck

      The best part of mac is cmd instead of ctrl.
      >closing and quitting apps is really moronic
      t. can't understand difference between a window and a program
      >there's no way to set natural scrolling for trackpad and mouse separately.
      "natural" scrolling is moronic, ever using it is proof that you too, are moronic
      >coreutils
      This is a good tip
      >iterm2
      ngmi

      macOS' concept of spaces is pants-on-head moronic and I hate it

        spaces used to work better in the old versions of the OS, I don't know why they made it worse with the Mission Control update.

    At the top of the finder button that will let you walk back up your file path.

    If the button isn’t there, add it by customizing the toolbar menus from one of the drop downs.

    Toddlers & normies shouldn’t have easy access to the entire file system.

    sure, you can't copy paste consistently, but who needs that when you have cp/mv/rm, frlzies Black person, it comes with UNIX bash integrated + a frickton of easily and searchable config menus + trackpad gestures

    macOS is one of those things that's always been kind of bad without third party fixes, but no one wants to admit it because they'll get called an idiot for not being able to use Fisher Price OS, even though the fact that it's Fisher Price OS is what makes it so gay and moronic to begin with.
