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.

Two Corrections in TidBITS 827

Two Corrections in TidBITS 827 -- Alert readers pointed out two corrections in last week's issue. In Mark Anbinder's article "MacBook Pro Line Adds 17-inch Size," the specification for the new laptop's SuperDrive should be 8x speed, not 4x (which Mark correctly wrote in his ExtraBITS post on the day the computer was announced, but got mangled when editing the issue).

And in "Tools We Use: Backdrop," I incorrectly wrote that one could take a screenshot in Mac OS X using the keyboard combinations Command-3 or Command-4. Since I (along with the rest of the staff) use Snapz Pro X to capture screenshots, I rarely use the Mac OS X shortcuts, which are Command-Shift-3 and Command-Shift-4. Thanks for keeping us (me) on our (my) toes! [JLC]
