Follow these instructions to launch the Finder on a MacBook Pro with OS X 10.13 or later:
1) Launch the rocket
2) Click the icon for the Finder
3) Click “Finder” in the window’s upper-left corner.

You may also open it by hitting Command + Shift + G, which will bring up a dialog box in which you can input “Finder” and press Enter to launch it.
If Finder is not already open and you need to locate a file, you can open it by clicking its icon on the Dock.
You may also hit Command + Shift + A on your keyboard to display all accessible apps, allowing you to select Finder from the list.

Macbook Copying & Deleting Files

Then, click and drag the mouse over the file you wish to copy, and release the mouse button until a small green plus sign appears next to the file. This will generate a new folder with the specified name into which you may place the copied files. Open Finder and pick “This Mac” from the sidebar to delete files from your Mac. Click on any file you wish to remove in Finder, or use CTRL+A if you wish to delete them all at once. Press Delete or CTRL+Delete on your keyboard to conclude.
