Last Issue for 1997 -- We're taking the next two weeks off for the holidays, so look for the next issue of TidBITS on 05-Jan-98. Since we will be spending time with family and friends, none of us will be checking email regularly. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your kind words and support in 1997, and wish you the best for 1998. This last year was a hard one for Macintosh users: here's hoping that next year brings renewed cause for optimism and enjoyment of what we do with our Macs. [ACE]
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.
