iTunes is great for organizing and managing libraries of music, videos, audiobooks and more. I personally find it very practical to let iTunes manage the locations of my files in the Finder. Occasionally, however, I need to find an actual file in the Finder. I might want to make a ringtone from a music file, or I might want to copy a video file to another hard disk. Rather than root around in your iTunes Media folder, there’s an easier way to find files.
To reveal a file in the Finder (or in the Windows Explorer), right-click on a file, then choose Show in Finder (or Show in Windows Explorer). (Or click on a file, then press Command-Shift-R.) A window will open with the selected file highlighted.
There’s another way you can do this. If you’re displaying the Info window for an item (select an item and press Command-I on a Mac, or Control-I on Windows), the Summary tab will show the full path of a file. In the Where section, near the bottom of this pane, you can see this path. If you right-click on this path, you can also show the file in the Finder (or the Windows Explorer).
