    Hello all,

    I was wondering if there was a way to find the size of a number of files. I know you can find each one individually by right clicking, get info, and then adding them up, but there has to be an easier way. Thanks!

    Do you right-click or ctrl-click?

    Because on my MacBook, if I select a number of files and ctrl-click, and keep pressing the ctrl, I get the option Get Summary Info instead of the usual Get Info. I think if you ctrl-right-click (using a mouse or two finger click), you'd get the same option...

    Nice.. I didn't know that. Should prove to be useful on some occasions. Thanks!
