- In the Finder, locate the file or folder that you want to create the alias for. For example, the folder that the PDF printer creates is located at /Users/Shared/CUPS-PFD/[your account name].
- Right-click the name of the file or folder you want to create the alias for.
- Choose "Make Alias".
Drag the newly created alias to a convenient location such as the Desktop. (An easy way to get your alias to the Desktop is to drag it to Desktop on the FAVORITES section on the left pane of the Finder window.) Once your alias is in its new location, you can change the name to remove "alias" from the end if you want.
You can tell a file or folder is an alias by the small arrow added to the file's icon in the Finder. To find out the file or folder that the alias is pointing to, you can right-click the alias and choose Get Info.
