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.

New Apple Campaign

Some ads might run a bit like this...

All I really wanted to do was simplify my job. So I bought Windows. I added extra RAM. I replaced my video card and monitor. I installed a mouse. I bought a half-dozen new programs, configured the system, set the DIP switches on the printer, and as I sit here watching my spreadsheet crawl on my PC, I'm thinking to myself "THIS IS MAKING IT EASIER?"
