    Love it! Just some quick questions...

    Thanks for your response! I still don't get point 2 though. Let's say I have 20 files all of different sizes - and I want to get the total size of all of the files, not their individual sizes in 20 different panels. Is there an easy way to do this :?:
  3. I switched about a month ago, and for the most part, I am loving my mac experience. I bought a 15" and it's great! After so many years of windows use, it's nice to be able to enjoy using a computer again. I do have a few really easy questions (hopefully) that I've tried searching for with no joy. ](*,) 1. Is there a way to change the icon of a folder? It's really easy in Windows, and I'm sure previous Mac OS's used to support this? 2. Is there any easy way to get the size of some files in a directory? In Windows you just select them, right click and choose properties. I tried that on my mac and a million get info windows appeared! 3. Is there a way to create shortcuts on the desktop? Eg: to files or folders, without copying them from their locations. I know you can use the dock, and the left of the finder bar...but desktop ones would be nice. 4. Finally - in Windows when you drag a file around you can hold 'ctrl' or 'alt' depending on whether you would like to make a copy of it, or just a shortcut (with the default being move) - is there a way to do this on the Mac? Especially the drag and copy...can't seem to find it anywhere! Anyway I love my Mac (and the Maccast) - so hopefully someone out there can help me out. If the gaming world ever comes to the Mac, I'll be ditching my PC desktop as well! :mrgreen:
