So I accidently did a select all in a folder full of 100s of files, and then double clicked on the selected files!

This launched all the files in a fast sequence!

My question is how to do I stop this process in the finder? I tried force quit finder but it didn't stop the files from opening!

What's the solution so it doesn't happen again? :-(

My guess is that you "selected all" or had multiple files / folders selected when you opened one of the files - as long as only one file is selected it should not happen again?
