Simplify the Finder on Mac
You can give a user easy access to just a few items on the Mac by turning on Simple Finder. Instead of the many options available in the full Finder, Simple Finder shows only a few.
Before you can set up Simple Finder for a user, turn on parental controls. See Set up parental controls.
Set up Simple Finder
On your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Parental Controls.
Select a user in the list of users, then click Other.
Select Use Simple Finder.
Simple Finder shows only three folders: My Applications, Documents and Shared. You can decide which apps and documents the user can see in the folders.
You may have to restart the Mac for the changes to take effect.
Change preferences for a user’s Simple Finder
In the Simple Finder on your Mac, choose Finder > Run Full Finder, then enter your administrator name and password. In the full Finder you can make the changes you want in Finder preferences.
When you’ve finished, choose Finder > Return to Simple Finder.
