Here’s How to Teleport to a Specific Mac Folder While Opening or Saving

Ever wanted to jump to a particular folder on your Mac while opening or saving a file? You can, thanks to a clever Finder trick. Whenever you have an Open or Save dialog open in an app, switch to the Finder, find the folder you want to access, and drag its icon into the dialog. Presto—instant navigation to that folder! It may feel like you are going to move the folder into the shown location, but instead it changes to current location to match the folder you are dragging. You can even drag a file onto the box and the name will change to match to file name and location. This trick even works if you drag the proxy icon—the little icon in the title bar of any window.
