Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

Skype 6.3

Send Article to a Friend

Microsoft has released Skype 6.3, a maintenance release to the Internet telephony app with a smattering of new features. The update adds a slideshow view that displays other participants when you are the current speaker in a group call (including group calls when someone else is screen sharing). It also adds an in-call dial pad for generating DTMF (dual-tone multi-frequency) tones, which is displayed after pressing the dial pad in the call toolbar while you’re on a call with a phone number. The release also brings several improvements, including the capability to sign into Skype when using Ecamm’s Call Recorder software and optimized preference menus for Danish, Italian, Japanese, and Korean localizations. (Free, 37.5 MB, release notes)
