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.

 
 

Info-Mac Back Soon

Send Article to a Friend

Info-Mac Back Soon -- Worrying about the return of Info-Mac? Fear not, Info-Mac will return - the moderators continue to work hard at correctly setting up all the important scripts and Unix details. All the files have been moved over from sumex-aim, and the new machine (a gift from AOL a few years ago), is officially set up and working at MIT. The hope is that Info-Mac will come online in the next week or so. Please don't submit new files to the archive until that time; some resubmissions will be necessary for files that arrived during the move. [ACE]
