    Hi all,

    Still getting acquainted with MacOS X here, so bare with me. :D

    Is it possible to highlight multiple files and get the collective file size? As a Windows user, I would have thought highlighting the files and select "get info" would have done the trick, but instead it opened up a series of individual windows for each files. :eek: And btw, is there a faster way to close all 40 opened info windows at once? :eek: LoL.

    Select the files and do Option + Command + I.

    To close all the windows hold Option and click the red X.

    Oh thanks for the fast response. I knew there was a way. ;):)

    Any tip on how to kill multiple windows quickly (mentioned above)?

    Use the Cmd-W shortcut. It won't let you close them in the same time, but it allows you to to close them quickly without moving your mouse.

    EDITL: I tried Cmd-alt-w. It works! Closes them all at once.
