If you're using Windows, you create "shortcuts" to represent files or folders. On a Mac, you can create an "alias" that ...
works the same way. This lets you put links to programs you use in the dock on the desktop or organized into folders without having to physically move the application on your hard drive. Michael "Doctor File Finder" Callahan explains.

Learn About an Alias on the Mac
Hi this is Mike Callahan, Dr. File Finder, and welcome to your butterscotch.com tutorial on what is an alias on my Mac.
Alias on a Mac is similar to a shortcut on a Windows PC. When you click on most objects on a Mac, you can find the option to make an alias. Now, a good way to look at it, I’ll open finder. And here’s the music folder. It’s loaded with music, megabytes and megabytes and gigabytes of music. Now if I made a copy of the folder, it would take about that extra disk space. But if I right click and say, make an alias, it makes an alias to the music folder. So, what this does is it takes me to the music folder without making a copy of the music folder. But I want, I can move this alias to trash and it’s gone, but the music is still there.
So that’s all in aliases, essentially a shortcut to a file or folders or an object on your Mac and that’s all there is to it.
