How to restore your lost iCloud folder on Mac

Lost my iCloud folder :

I was thinking about writing on this topic for a long time. I do it more than 24 times in a year. Open your finder window, click and drag your iCloud folder and it is gone. First time it took me a while to search for the solution. Normally, to add a folder on the left side menu of finder, I use spotlight search to find it and drag-drop it on the sidebar.

  1. Open one finder window or any folder.
  2. Go to Finder -> Preferences or use the short code : Cmd + ,
