Turn Off Filename Extension Warning

In Leopard, Apple fixed an annoying aspect of working with the Finder in Tiger. Previously, if you changed a file's extension, the Finder prompted for confirmation. But since no one has ever accidentally changed a filename extension, Apple thankfully added an option to turn that warning off in the Leopard Finder's preferences. Choose Finder > Preferences, and in the Advanced screen, deselect Show Warning Before Changing an Extension.

Send Article to a Friend

Remember iDVD? iLife’s DVD authoring software hasn’t seen much action of late, but Apple has now released iDVD 7.1.2. The minor update addresses a number of performance issues and minor bugs, including a problem that could prevent files from relinking and slowdowns when searching for missing files. In addition, the new version of iDVD includes code that improves the reliability of imported iPhone ’11 slideshows. (Free update through Software Update, 36.12 MB)
