The Path Bar in Bridge CS5 has gotten a few tweaks to allow for faster, easier navigation. As in the last version of the program, I can reveal the Path Bar by going to the Window menu and down to Path Bar, and here I see a path to the folder or directory on my computer that's currently showing in the Content window of Bridge. What's new about the Path Bar is that I can now type in it. So I can type the directory that I want to go to. I'll click just to the right of the last arrow and that opens this text editing field.
I can click anywhere in this path and type. I am just going to type at the end. I am going type Exercise Files/Chapter07. Then I'll press Return or Enter on my keyboard and the text editing window will close and Bridge will take me to the location at the end of this path and that's not all. I am going to make Bridge slightly smaller, so I can see my desktop, by clicking and dragging it from its bottom right corner. In Bridge CS5, I can drag a file or a folder from anywhere in my Operating System to the Path Bar to go to that location in Adobe Bridge.
So for example, here's a file on my Desktop, if I drag this file up to the Path Bar, watch what happens in the Content panel. It goes directly to my Desktop. Now, I am going to go somewhere else, anywhere else on my computer to show you that on a Mac, if you drag a file or folder from anywhere onto the Bridge Start icon in the dock, the same thing happens. You go to that location, in this case the Desktop in the Content panel of Bridge. So, those are a couple of small ways that Bridge has been more user friendly and more useful to you when you're navigating.
