Mr. Eeee Level 1 Level 1
I recently got a new iMac (my old iMac was a PPC) and I've noticed an annoying thing about how the info window works on my new comp (maybe it's just a Snow Leopard thing since you can't have 'Snow' on a PPC)...anyway, what it is, is that when I open an info window on multiple-selected files, it opens an info window for every single one.

On my old iMac, if I opened an info window on more than like 10 files or so (I forget exactly), it would open one single window for all of the files selected and I could lock/unlock or whatever all of the files at once instead of having 200 freaking windows open and have to do whatever individually on each one (it was a pain just closing all of the windows that opened the few times I've tried it so far).

So...is there some setting I don't know about that can fix this? --Or is this just an annoying quirk of Snow Leopard?

I've run permissions repairs and everything else on the computer seems to work perfectly.

Please enlighten me. Thanx a lot!

Intel Core 2 Duo iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.4), Leopard installed---hear me roar!

Hi Mr Eeee

you can choose to open an 'Inspector' window, via Option-Command-I or Option-Ctrl-click - Show Inspector.

That will allow you to edit more than one item at once (unless it's a mix of files & folders )

If you end up with too many open windows by mistake, you can close all of them at once by typing Command-Option-W.
