For the Mac, you can create shortcuts to folders or applications by dragging them to the finder toolbar. However, once you have done that, you may be wondering how to remove it from the toolbar interface. The way to deal with this is the following:
1) Have Finder selected and in view
2) Hold the “command” button
3) Click and drag the shortcut you want to remove and drag it off the toolbar. (Make sure the “command button is held when you are doing this”.
4) You will see the shortcut poof and now it is removed from the toolbar!
