Eject a disk

After working with a disk, server, iPod, CD, or DVD, you may want to eject it to remove it from your desktop.

Before you eject an item, close any open documents on it and quit any apps that may be using files on the disk.

  • Select the item to eject, then choose File > Eject.
  • In the sidebar of a Finder window, click the Eject button next to the item’s name.
