    Hey friends,

    Is there a way to disable the "Are you sure?" warning when emptying the trash? Thanks :)

    Of course there is!

    Finder -> Preferences -> Advanced

    Then unclick the box that says "Show warning before emptying trash"

    Thanks! And while we're on that screen, what does "Zoom using Trackpad" mean?

    I'm guessing that with a Multi-Touch trackpad you can zoom in on the screen. This can also be done by holding ctrl and scrolling with your fingers upwards...Interesting

    I can't confirm or deny this, but that is what it sounds like to me

    That works even without the new Multi Touch trackpads. They just have to support dual finger recognition / scrolling. Press ctrl, and then do some two finger scrolling action...

    Actually, I just noticed that it doesn't show up in my Finder's preferences as well. It works, though... :confused:

    Sorry this is a late post, but the zooom with trackpad bit lets you resize the folders by pinching - like the icon size slider in the bottom left when you search for something.
