    When I used Panther I'd be able to, for example, find the total file size of a group of files by selecting them, right-clicking, and choosing Get Info. When I do the same in Tiger it just opens and tiles a load of individual info windows, but I can't find any way to get the file size of the whole selection. Am I missing something obvious here or has the functionality just been removed?

    I believe you have to go to the File menu and choose "Inspector Panel", though I'm not in front of my Tiger machine at the moment.

    Thanks for the help. You need to hold option when you click 'Get Info' to make it show the information for multiple files. Kind of annoying but I can live with it.

    When you ctrl-click, if you keep holding ctrl after, 'Get Info' turns to 'Get Summary Info'.
