Drag and drop bluetooth transfer!

A great tip submitted by Stephen: Drag and drop bluetooth transfer! If you are using Bluetooth File Exchange to transfer files between bluetooth devices (including Mac to Mac), you can add the icon to the Dock and just drop the files you want to transfer on the icon. If you don't have a local network setup, it is a quick way of transferring files between Macs. Bluetooth File Exchange.app is located in the Utilities folder. Thanks for the tip Stephen.

@ Zevie

If you're talking about system preferences.app, it goes in the Applications folder.
