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.

Internet Providers!

Send Article to a Friend

Internet Providers! -- In an attempt to provide more complete information about Internet providers in the second edition of Internet Starter Kit for Macintosh, I'm seeking information about providers around the world who are not listed in Peter Kaminski's excellent PDIAL list. (To request a copy of the PDIAL list, send email to <info-deli-server@netcom.com> with "Send PDIAL" in the Subject line.)

I'll post the results to the net as well, and feel free to forward this to providers who might not otherwise see it. Please send me <ace@tidbits.com> four (and only four) pieces of information:

  • Provider name

  • Your <info@domain.com> address for additional information

  • Your voice phone number

  • A list of the area codes you cover for local access (and the country if outside the U.S.) [ACE]
