Snow Leopard - cannot do multiple 'get info' permissions at once?

    OK in Leopard I could always select a bunch of files, right click and get info, then change the permissions to Read and Write for Everyone and Leopard would apply it to all files selected.

    Now, when I try the same thing in Snow Leopard it actually opens the get info window for every individual file selected and I have to manually apply it to each one.

    So annoying. Does anyone know how to go back to the old way?

    Cheers :)

    Hold down the option key. The get info option will change to Show inspector. Select that, now you'll get one window for all the files.
