    Quick question here. Is there a way to force the Get Info window of multiple files to open in 1 window? For example, if you select 2 files (say, 2 mp3 files) and hit command i, 2 windows will open. But if you have select enough files to fill your entire screen (say 30 depending on your display) then they will all open in one window. Is there a way to force a smaller amount (5 or so) of files to still open in 1 get info window?

    Thanks

    Use Ctrl-Cmd-I instead of Cmd-I.

    One thing that's useful in relation to this is that, since there are a lot of Cmd key combos that get modified by using Alt, Shift, or Ctrl, it can be hard to learn what they are for each program. Whenever you have a menu -- contextual or menubar -- you can open the menu and look at it, and then press these combination keys to see what changes (i.e. if you have a menu and a command changes when you press ctrl, opening the menu and then holding ctrl will show you the ctrl version of the shortcut and the description will change to the modified function).
