Adjust Multiple Column Sizes Simultaneously

Within the Finder, Column View enables you to see folder hierarchies, with each subsequent level getting its own column. Dragging on the double lines at the base of a column divider changes the preceding column's width. But Option-drag on any divider, and all the columns in the window change to the same width.

Poll Preview: Them Tomes, Them Tomes -- Literally hundreds of new computer books appear every year, covering the latest versions of software, passing on tips and techniques for creating everything from Web sites to digital videos, and opining on the state of technology and the industry. Frankly, it's overwhelming (and if you don't believe me, take a gander at the size of the computer section in a large bookstore). But despite the books whose pages should have been allowed to remain in tree form, there are true gems, books that offer assistance you can't easily find elsewhere or that provide a unique perspective in a form far too detailed for a magazine or Web site. This week's poll question, then, asks, "Which factors most influence your decision to purchase a computer book?" Perhaps it's a combination of a review, special pricing, and being able to flip through a copy first, but whatever the specifics, register your opinions on our home page (and if you never buy computer books, there's an answer for you too).
