Mark a location with a pin in Maps on Mac
You can drop a pin at a location to get directions or help you find it again. Pins are temporary, but you can save a location to use later by marking it as a favourite.
Drop a pin
In the Maps app on your Mac, Control-click the location you want to mark with a pin, then choose Drop Pin. (Or force click on a Mac with a Force Touch trackpad.)
Maps drops a purple pin in the centre of the map. Maps uses red pins to mark locations — for example, when you search for a business — but a pin that you drop is purple. You can have only one dropped pin on the map at a time.
If the pin isn’t where you want it, drag it to a new location on the map.
To see information about a pin, click it, then click the Info button . To close the Info window, click outside of it.
Remove a pin
You can remove a pin that you drop (purple pin ).
In the Maps app on your Mac, scroll the map to show the location you marked with a pin.
Choose Edit > Remove Pin.
You can also Control-click a pin, then choose Remove Pin.
To clear pins added from search results (red pins ), click in the search field.
