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.

Send Article to a Friend

Objective Development has released LaunchBar 5.4.3 with improvements in detecting Google Chrome and Chromium bookmarks and with the app’s Automatic Software Update. The release also fixes an iTunes issue where the Play from Album option played only the first track, squashes a bug that caused LaunchBar not to hide after invoking a service, fixes an issue with indexing of symlinked preference panes, and ensures that dialogs don’t appear underneath the search result list. ($35 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 2.5 MB, release notes)
