Join Chad Chelius for an in-depth discussion in this video The Home folder, part of Learning Mac OS X Mountain Lion.
One of the important concepts that users of a multi-user computer need to …understand, is that of the home folder. A home folder is automatically created …through each user of the computer. And the home folder is each person's …storage location for various files and folders that only that person has access to. …So as a user is working on the computer while logged into their account, the home …folder is where they will store all of their information. …So to begin I'm going to come up here to the File menu within the Finder, and I'm …going to choose New Finder Window. And if you look over here on the side …bar, you'll see a number of different folders, but you should also see a folder …that has a little house icon next to it. And that is the home folder.…
Now, if you don't see that icon in your side bar, what you can do is come up here …to the Finder menu, go to Preferences, and then click on the Side Bar icon. …Make sure that at the bottom, that your User Folder is clicked within that …window, and then you can close that, and that should make your home folder show up. …
